Brazil to acquire three Black Hawk Helicopters
Brazil requested three UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters with eight T-700-GE-701C engines (six installed and two spares), and a dozen M-134 7.62mm machine guns.
Brazil needs the aircraft to fulfill its strategic commitments for additional search-and-rescue and internal security capabilities, according to the notice. The additional aircraft will upgrade Brazil’s air mobility capability and provide for the defense of vital installations and close air support for ground forces.
