Lockheed Martin Australia welcomes the Department of Defence’s announcement to acquire the UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter—the best-in-class multi-mission battlefield helicopter that is unmatched for durability, survivability, multi-role versatility, affordability and interoperability. As part of project LAND 4507-1, Australia will acquire 40 UH-60M Black Hawks for the Army via a Foreign Military Sale from the United States Government. The Sikorsky Black Hawk has proven itself to be a dependable and versatile battlefield and special forces aviation asset for, not only Australia but, over 35 other countries around the globe.
Lockheed Martin Australia Chief Executive Warren McDonald welcomed the UH-60M Black Hawk capability acquisition decision.
“The UH-60M Black Hawk is a tough, reliable and proven utility helicopter. Australia’s acquisition of the Black Hawk reinforces our nation’s enduring military interoperability with the US and allied nations. The Black Hawk will enhance future joint operations and the ongoing protection of Australia and the Indo-Pacific region.”
