Brazil orders additional S-70B helicopters

4th November 2013 - 10:48 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Sikorsky will supply two S-70B helicopters to Brazil as part of a foreign military sale (FMS) between the US and Brazilian governments. Sikorsky was awarded an $87 million modification to a previously awarded contract for the aircraft.

The additional S-70B anti-submarine warfare/anti-surface warfare aircraft are scheduled for delivery by June 2017. 

Sikorsky will also supply associated non-recurring engineering, production, and transportation, as well as training and field support under the contract.

The Brazilian Navy previously placed an order for S-70B aircraft in 2010 for four aircraft, and in 2011 for two aircraft, both under FMS agreements with the US.
