Black Hawks for the PH Air Force


This news comes after last Saturday’s confirmation that the PAF’s first 5 of 16 ordered S-70i Black Hawk combat utility helicopters (CUHs) were transported by a Antonov An-124 Ruslan, flight ADB3516.

The said cargo airplane made a stop in Kuwait before flying straight to the Philippines.

The 16 Black Hawks were ordered under PAF’s Combat Utility Helicopter (Phase 3) Acquisition Project under the Duterte administration, which is a Horizon 2 phase priority project under the current Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Modernization Project.
