The Lithuanian government has agreed with the U.S. to acquire $213M worth of UH-60M Black Hawk medium-lift aircraft as part of the European nation’s first-ever purchase of American-made helicopters, Defense News reported Saturday.
The Lithuanian Ministry of National Defence intends to procure four of the helicopters built by Lockheed Martin’s (NYSE: LMT) Sikorsky subsidiary to replace its military’s Mil Mi-8T aircraft.
Raimundas Karoblis, Lithuania's defense minister, signed the deal with the U.S. government during an official visit to Washington, D.C.
According to a statement from Lithuania's defense ministry that Defense News obtained, the potential foreign military sales agreement also covers ancillary equipment, spares, repair services and logistics support.
The U.S. will begin deliveries of the UH-60M helicopters in late 2024.
