Thailand Wants Six MH-60S Helicopters
10 Apr 2006
The Government of Thailand has requested a possible Foreign Military Sale of six MH-60S helicopters, including 14 T700 engines, spare parts, and support. The total value, if all options are exercised, could be as high as 6 million.
The Royal Thai Navy (RTN) requires the helicopters to fulfill utility lift requirements. Thailand’s need to enhance its maritime defense and disaster relief capabilities was highlighted during the recent tsunami search and rescue operations.
Thailand already has UH-60 helicopters in its inventory.
