A US State Department senior official said today that five Sikorsky UH-60M helicopters are going to be delivered to Mexico “at the end of summer or the beginning of autumn” as part of the Merida Initiative program.

It has been reported -further confirmation is needed-  that the Black Hawk helicopters are going to be used by the Mexican Navy for a variety of missions such as CSAR, Drug Trafficking Interdiction and Special Operations.

With a state of the art all-glass cockpit (four MFD’s) and an expanded payload capacity and range, the UH-60M is the most advanced version of the Black Hawk family.
