Mexico’s Federal Police has received three brand new Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk Helicopters.
The state-of-the-art helicopters were donated to Mexico by the United States’ Government under the Merida Initiative counter-narcotics cooperation agreement. The Black Hawks have a nose-mounted FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared) equipment.
The Federal Police already operates 7 Black Hawk helicopters (UH-60L) for surveillance, transport and special operations duties.
PS. The Mexican Navy is going to receive an unspecified number of UH-60M’s over the next two years.
