Taiwan to take delivery of first batch of Black Hawks in December
Taiwan will begin taking delivery of UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters from the United States by the end of this year, with the first batch of six of the 60 aircraft set to arrive in mid-December.
The helicopters will be shipped to Taiwan in seven batches, with the final batch scheduled to arrive in 2018.
The U.S. government announced in early 2010 that it was selling Taiwan the 60 UH-60 Black Hawk.
They will be mainly used for transportation by the Army, while 15 of them will be used for disaster relief.
They will replace the Army's aging fleet of UH-1H utility helicopters. focustaiwan
