Washington (UPI) Sep 1, 2017


Australia has gained State Department approval for the possible purchase from the United States for an upgrade program for its MH-60R Multi-Mission Helicopters.

The sale, announced Thursday, would be through the Foreign Military Sales program and carries a value of an estimated $360 million.

"The proposed upgrades to the MH-60R helicopters will improve Australia's anti-submarine and surface warfare capability, provide an improved search-and-rescue capability, enhance its anti-ship surveillance capability, and will help it carry out international commitments for transport, surveillance, and search-and-rescue operations with the United States and other allies," the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a press release.

The proposed sales package would be a 10-year follow on case for upgrade of 24 MH-60R helicopters. It would include training devices, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, engineering and technical services, logistics support.

U.S. government and contractor engineering, and engineering services are also included in the sale.

Principal contractors for the deal would be Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, and Lockheed Martin itself.
