The Philippines to buy more Black Hawks from Poland

 The Philippines' President approved the purchase of an additional 15 Black Hawk helicopters, produced at the PZL Mielec plant. They will join the sixteen machines of this type that have already been ordered.

The Philippine Armed Forces already have S-70i Black Hawk helicopters supplied by PZL Mielec, owned by Lockheed Martin. In 2019, Manila ordered sixteen machines from this company for an amount of approximately USD 240 million, six of which were handed over to the user in 2020, and another ten will be delivered to the user this year.
