Welcome to the page where we recognize a vital part of the TCH team!

One of TCH's most important weapons systems was the embarked anti-submarine warfare helicopter know as Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS).  The SH-2 Seasprite was maintained and operated by Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squardon (light) Thirty Two (HSL-32).  While other squadrons embarked in TCH, HSL-32 was the primary squadron to support TCH.  All LAMPS AIRDET personnel, from all squadrons, made a huge contribution to the success of TCH and we definitely consider them our shipmates!
