    Blackhawks for Latvia

    That looks like a good chunk of change. Wonder how much the helicopters actually cost versus all the support equipment/spares?

    WASHINGTON, AUG. 3, 2018 - The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Latvia of four (4) UH-60M Black Hawk Helicopters and related equipment for an estimated cost of $200 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale today.

    Well according to this 257 of them cost $3.8 billion which comes to $14,785,992.22 each.


    "On 03 July 2017 Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, and the U.S. government have signed a five-year contract for 257 H-60 Black Hawk helicopters to be delivered to the U.S. Army and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers. The new “Multi-Year IX” contract for UH-60M Black Hawk and HH-60M MEDEVAC aircraft marked the ninth multiple-year contract for Sikorsky and the U.S. government for H-60 helicopters. The contract value for expected deliveries was approximately $3.8 billion and included options for an additional 103 aircraft, with the total contract value potentially reaching $5.2 billion."
