UAE secures spares and repairs for helicopter fleet via FMS

24th April 2020 - 09:35 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The UAE is to receive common spares/repair parts from the US for its fleet of AH-64 Apache, UH-60 Black Hawk and CH-47 Chinook (pictured) helicopters, under a Foreign Military Sales Order (FMSO) II announced on 23 April.

At a cost of $150 million, the request was made under the Cooperative Logistics Supply Support Agreement. This deal will support the UAE Joint Aviation Command.

No principal contractors have yet been disclosed.

The sale will not alter the military balance in the Middle East and will enhance the interoperability of US forces with their Emirati counterparts, according to the DSCA.
