Royal Thai Army receives four more UH-60Ms

12-Dec-2022

The Royal Thai Army has recently taken delivery of four Sikorsky UH-60M helicopters to take their Black Hawk fleet to a total of 18.  From the first  deliveries of three UH-60L models in 2011, 20 have been imported, including three acquired pre-owned.  Two have been retired from service following incidents in July 2011 and July 2022.

The latest arrivals carry the consecutive codes 7450 through 7453 and will be operated by 9th Aviation Battalion

Two videos posted recently on YouTube (see below) show the helicopters being craned off a transport ship at Laem Chabang Port (Chonburi Province), having their blades fitted and then flying away from the dockside.

They are believed to have flown to Fort Princess Srinagarindra, the Royal Thai Army AAC (Army Aviation Cente) Headquarters in Lopburi Province.
