Manufactured by Mitsubishi, the HSS-2B is a license-built version of the American Sikorsky Sea King, whose primary purpose is as an Anti-Submarine Helicopter. However, the craft was used for a much different purpose in the mid 1980's, when the helicopter was summoned forth to join in the search with the SH-60J to find the submerged Godzilla in the waters surrounding Tokyo.

In the early 1990's, during the Futurian epidemic, the HSS-2B was called forth to ferry Miki Saegusa and Professor Mazaki out to sea, once again in search of Godzilla. Flying low over the ocean, Miki attempted to sense Godzilla's presence, like she had over Mount Mihara, and was successful as nuclear leviathan rose from the Ocean beneath them, on his way inland for a confrontation with King Ghidorah.
