845 NAS was the second of the four ‘Junglie’ Squadrons to take delivery of the new Sea King Mk 4 Commando helicopter as a replacement for the Wessex Mk 5.
In November 1992 the squadron saw the commencement of protracted tours to Bosnia and Herzegovina as part of the United Nations and NATO lead Peace Implementation Force (IFOR). 845 NAS was the longest serving unit in theatre, maintaining a permanent presence in the former Yugoslavia until 2005.
With the increasing requirement for additional support helicopters 845 NAS is currently deployed on operations in Afghanistan where the primary role of 845 and her sister squadron, 846 NAS, is to provide troop and underslung load lift capability, casualty and mine strike evacuation and any other task deemed appropriate as part of the Joint Helicopter Force (Afghanistan), (JHF(A)).
