Croatia has requested the Black Hawk deal includes up to nine T700-GE-70 ID engines and nine H-764GU/Embedded Global Positioning/Inertial Navigation systems.

The FMS also includes the sale of communication security equipment, including an AN/APX-123A Identification Friend or Foe transponder and AN/ARC-231 RT-1808A radios.

“The sale of these UH-60 helicopters to Croatia will significantly increase its capability to provide troop lift, border security, counterterrorism, medical evacuation, search and rescue, re-supply/external lift, and combat support. These UH-60 helicopters will allow for interoperability with U.S. and NATO forces in rapid response to a variety of missions and quick positioning of troops with minimal helicopter assets,” DSCA officials said in a statement.
