Just as we stated some months ago, the Mexican Navy received three Sikorsky UH-60M helicopters from the United States’ Government.
In a ceremony at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey, the Department of Defense Northern Command delivered the brand new helicopters a part of the Merida Counternarcotics Initiative.
It’s been said that the Mexican Navy will use the Blackhawks for CAS, MEDEVAC and Troop Transport Missions along with the Eurocopter EC-725 Cougar helicopters ordered directly by the Mexican Navy.
In the coming months, the US Government will deliver four EADS-CASA CN-234 Persuader Maritime Patrol Aircraft to the Mexican Navy.
Ps. The US Government delivered another three UH-60M for Mexico’s Federal Police last year.
