Aside the problems with the disastrous SH-2 Seasprite adquisition programme (none helicopter adquired, but a lot of money spended), previously the Royal Australian Navy Adelaide-class (FFG-7) frigates between 1980-1991 were devoid of any ASW/combat helicopter capabilities, as I did discover a few days ago researching about WestPac scenarios settled circa 1988.
The Australian FFG-7 frigates were not equipped with any helicopters between 1980-1984, with three Bell 206B-1 Kiowa liaison/general purpose helicopters from 1984, and with six AS 350B Squirrel (Fennec) liaison/general purpose helicopters between 1985-1991. Only from 1991 the SH-60B were operational and employed from the Australian frigates, as stated here:
