The service selected, on June 30, the EADS twin-engine UH-145 for its Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) programme.


The army plans to buy 322 aircraft in a procurement with a potential value of USD3 billion. In addition, the army is considering an additional order of 30 helicopters beyond its stated requirement for 322 aircraft.


The service launched the programme with a USD 43.1 million contract for initial deliveries of the new helicopter, which will be designated the UH-72A. First aircraft are to be delivered in November.


The helicopter is designed to take on a range of missions, from general support and medical evacuation (medevac) to personnel recovery and counter-narcotics operations.


The new helicopters will replace UH-1 Hueys, UH-60A medevac helicopters as well as some US Army National Guard OH-58 Kiowa Warriors. The UH-72A will be employed largely in domestic and humanitarian missions, freeing up combat aircraft for overseas deployments
