National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has said that he is looking forward to this year’s delivery of remaining 10 S70i Black Hawk Combat Utility Helicopters built by Poland-based company PZL Mielec.
In December 2020, the Philippine Air Force (PAF) accepted the delivery of 6 S70i Black Hawks as part of the 16 units ordered from PZL Mielec.
“Since their acquisition, our Blackhawk S-70is have greatly boosted the operational readiness of the PAF in both combat and non-combat missions. Their larger capacity and impressive horsepower allows for a faster and long-range transport,” Secretary Lorenzana said.
“Looking forward to the delivery of the remaining 10 Blackhawks this year,” he added.
