Why buy 70's technology when newer version are available since 2007?

Hi,
"WISH U ALL HAPPY & PROSPEROUS DIWALI".

Both Lockheed-Sikorsky MH-60R & Eurocopter-Agusta-Fokker NH90 helicopter are proven for Navy's multi-role helicopter
(MRH)competition.

I thing Indian Navy needs at least 40(MRH) for its new acquisition of Kolkota-Class, Shivalik-class and replace it with Old Sea King helicopter.

And Navy should go for license production for more then 100 for future spare problem.
