Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has approved sale of UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters to Brazil at an estimated cost of $145 million Monday.

The Government of Brazil has requested a possible sale of 3 UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters with 8 T-700-GE-701C engines (6 installed and 2 spares), 12 M-134 7.62mm Machine Guns, 8 H765GU Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation Systems, spare and repair parts, tools and support equipment, publications and technical data, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and technical support services, and other related elements of logistics support.

Brazil needs these aircraft to fulfill its strategic commitments for additional search and rescue and internal security capabilities. This procurement will upgrade its air mobility capability and provide for the defense of vital installations and close air support for ground forces. Brazil will have no difficulty absorbing these helicopters into its armed forces.

The principal contractors will be Sikorsky Aircraft, General Electric Engines and Dillon Aero Systems.
