Taiwan receives four out of 60 ordered Black Hawks from US

Taiwan (Republic of China) receives four out of sixty ordered UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters from United States. Sixty Black Hawk choppers from US cost approximately USD3.1 billion. This Foreign Military Sale was approved by US government in 2010.

Delivery of all medium-lift utility helicopters is expected to be completed in ten batches through 2019.

Taiwan Army will be replacing its aged UH-1H Huey utility helicopters with the said choppers.

Black Hawk was designed and initially manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft for U.S. Army. It entered service during late 1970s.

United States is now positioned to enter into another Foreign Military Sale with Taiwan. US Senate has recently approved a bill allowing sale of four guided missile frigates to Taiwan.
