Black Hawk helicopters already in Ukraine? – Technology Org
The transfer of the American Black Hawk helicopters to Ukraine was not announced by any country. But it seems these advanced flying vehicles are already in service with the Ukrainian army.
Yesterday, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine showed its soldiers after completing the task on multi-purpose combat helicopters. The machine standing next to the army men appears to be Black Hawk. This was reported by the press service of the Main Department of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
The message only said that the reconnaissance pilots returned after completing the training task. Helicopters significantly expand the capabilities of special units of military intelligence, while also allowing to achieve much higher effectiveness of special tasks.
The published photos show two helicopters – one of them being the Ukrainian Mi-24 and, apparently, the export version of the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. The American model also has distinctive Ukrainian markings, indicating that it is in service with the reconnaissance army unit.
Officially, the supply of helicopters to Ukraine was not reported by any news channel. However, this aircraft is manufactured by the American company Sikorsky, which means that delivery of these helicopters to Ukraine would not be possible without the direct permission of the United States.
The Sikorsky S-70i is an export modification of the UH-60 helicopter, which is produced in Poland at the Sikorsky PZL-Mielec plant.
