island hopping, transportation, and supplies.
marine rescue.
anything else ?? please pardon my ignorance, smiles.

At least for now, AG-600 is not designed for anti-submarine warfare (ASW), as it lacks a magnetic anomaly detector (MAD) on the tail.
Its predecessor SH-5 was equipped with a MAD though.
