Taiwan to order 30 more Black Hawks for army

4th April 2019 - 01:35 GMT | by Charles Au in Taipei


The Republic of China Army (ROCA) will order an additional 30 UH-60M Black Hawks. This has become necessary to fill out the Army Aviation and Special Forces Command fleet, which was originally supposed to have 60 Black Hawks.

Officials did not disclose the cost of the order, but the initial deal for 60 aircraft in 2010 was worth $3.1 billion, including technical support services.

The ROC Army was only able to keep 30 Black Hawks under its command, which is a third of the number originally planned in 2000. The type was needed to replace 118 license-built UH-1Hs.
