STRATFORD, Conn. - In a move to modernize its defense capabilities, the Greek government has signed an agreement to purchase 35 UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters from Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company (NYSE: NYSE:LMT). This procurement, formalized through a Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) today, is part of a Foreign Military Sale from the U.S. government.

The deal includes not only the versatile helicopters but also personnel training and training equipment, aimed at facilitating the integration of these aircraft into the Hellenic Army's operations. Sikorsky's President, Paul Lemmo, emphasized the reliability of the UH-60M Black Hawk in national and allied security missions, noting its operation by over 35 countries worldwide.

Costas Papadopoulos, Lockheed Martin's international business development director for Greece, expressed honor in strengthening their partnership with the Hellenic Armed Forces. He highlighted the Black Hawk's suitability for Greece's multi-mission requirements and its capabilities to enhance national security effectiveness.

The Black Hawk helicopters are expected to offer Greece a broad range of operational capabilities, including increased range, adaptability for various missions, and enhanced survivability in challenging environments. The UH-60M model, along with the S-70B and MH-60R maritime helicopters, will provide the Greek forces with a family of aircraft that benefits from operational and maintenance commonality.

Lockheed Martin, known for its global defense technology solutions, continues to advance scientific discovery and innovation. The company's mission solutions are designed to ensure the readiness and superior capabilities of its clients.
