About the UH-60M/MH-60R

With a new airframe, avionics and propulsion system, the UH-60M helicopter is the latest and most modern in a series of BLACK HAWK variants that Sikorsky has been delivering to the Army since 1978. The UH-60M helicopter provides additional payload and range, advanced digital avionics, better handling qualities and situational awareness, active vibration control, improved survivability, and improved producibility.

The MH-60R helicopter was designed to support the U.S. Navy's helicopter master plan and meet mission requirements for maritime dominance. The MH-60S helicopter complements the mission capabilities of the MH-60R helicopter by performing troop transport, airborne mine countermeasures, armed helicopter and naval special warfare support missions. The MH-60R and MH-60S helicopters share the common multi-function digital glass cockpit. The airframe and cockpit commonality between the two aircraft provide exceptional flexibility of support, maintenance, and training, yielding significant savings.
