​Production contract follows approval in July of FMS package

Lockheed Martin subsidiary Sikorsky is building a single extra UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter for Jordan under a $13.74 million contract modification from US Army Contracting Command.

Completion of work is scheduled for 30 November 2020.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, Jordan already operates a fleet of 30 UH-60Ms.

On 7 July 2020, the the US State Department approved a $23 million FMS package for Jordan. As well as the UH-60M, this deal includes two General Electric T700-GE-701D engines; one Common Missile Warning System; communications and radar equipment; and software.

‘The UH-60M will supplement Jordan’s existing Royal Squadron fleet of Black Hawk helicopters and be used to facilitate the movement of the Jordanian Royal Family in a safe and efficient manner,’ the State Department noted at the time.
