The U.S.N.(HSL 94 Willow) SH-2G Super Seasprite has, as part of its weapons configuration , the Maverick AGM65 missile. I have searched many many websites to try and find a pic of this Titans Unit even carrying a missile, let alone firing one, but zero. Does anyone out there know where I can find such a pic/s. Did this sq. even have these missile, and torpedo's ? Be most grateful for and help.

I can't help with that particular squadron, however the RNZAF (which is another scheme in the kit) carried and fired Maverick.

I never flew the H-2, I was an SH-60B pilot, but I'm fairly certain the SH-2 (USN) didn't carry the Maverick. We (SH-60s) got Hellfire sometime around 2000 time-frame. As far as torpedoes go, Mk. 46 would be a sure bet. Again, I wasn't in HSL-94, but Mk. 46 was pretty common for the LAMPS community.

Sorry for the late reply.
