According to the blog bmpd with reference to defense ministry Slovakia, 26 of June of the current year, the first two American multi-purpose helicopters were delivered to the European Republic Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk.

Their assembly was carried out in Germany, where they came from the United States. Machines are supposed to equip the helicopter wing of them. Colonel-General Jan Ambrus (Vrtuľníkové krídlo generálplukovníka Jána Ambruša), stationed in Prešov.

The contract for the supply of 9 UH-60M was concluded in 2015 year. Its cost was 261 million. The remaining 2 helicopters are expected in 2018 year, another 5 - in 2019 year. The agreement provides for technical support and training of Slovak personnel. In this case, the shipment of cars is carried out without weapons

American cars are designed to replace the 9 of the Soviet-built 17-1988 Mi-1989 of the Soviet era that were transferred during the partition of Czechoslovakia. Until recently, they were the only helicopters of the Slovak armed forces.
As previously mentioned, the option of purchasing the 9 light multipurpose Bell 429 helicopters equipped with 24-hour electronic optical systems WESCAM MX-10 with the expected cost of shipping to 150 million is also being considered.

        It is just a business. US industry should work, and allies (vassals), etc. just a good reason for this.

            In their time, they abandoned their BMPs in favor of the German ones, in my opinion, so such countries are needed to fuel the industry of the elite, and of course their territory to house American bases, no more.

              First of all, there were no BMPs in the former Czechoslovakia. There was a licensed production of BMP-2.
              Secondly, we, and the Czech Republic and Slovakia are now looking for a replacement BMP-2. American models do not participate in the competition.
              Thirdly, there is not even any talk about any bases of foreign troops on our territory. Learn materiel, gentlemen, comrades

          And what is this if not occupation?
          Slovakia proclaimed a course for joining NATO immediately after independence in January 1993. Among the first in February 1994, she joined the Partnership for Peace program. In the same year, she joined the Process Planning and Analysis Program, and in November 1995 adopted the Individual Partnership Program. On the initiative of the opposition, in 1997 an attempt was made in Slovakia to hold a national referendum. The bulletins contained three questions: about joining NATO, about the deployment of nuclear weapons and the deployment of foreign military bases. Only 23% of citizens participated in the May 9,8 vote. Of these, 54% spoke out against joining NATO, 89% against the deployment of nuclear weapons and 83,5% against the deployment of military bases. The referendum was invalidated by the CEC for numerous violations. After coming to power in 1998, the former opposition, led by Mikulas Dzurinda, began to pursue an agreed policy for integration into the Euro-Atlantic security structure and did not return to the issue of the referendum. In June 1999, according to the Membership Action Plan adopted at the Washington Summit, the Government of Slovakia approved the Program for preparing the country for joining the Alliance. In March 2001, the National Council of Slovakia adopted a new security strategy, which proclaimed a course towards joining NATO. Officially invited to join the Alliance on February 21, 2002 at the Prague Summit. On March 29, 2004, Slovakia became a member of NATO.
          You will argue that the state of the country in NATO is not a kind of occupation. When are you dancing to the mute of the overseas boss?

              You don’t get used to dancing to Hitler’s. Now American mockery.
              Do not forget that the Slovak units were in the German invasion army. Yes, their fate is not enviable. Now do you want a NATO repeat?

        Theory. In practice, this was not really applied. In theory, we can extinguish everything and everything. In practice, but there is nothing! In the exercises, extinguish is like children in a sandbox. Where is reality? No. In Syria, we don’t highlight potential . Sucks. A man said, didn’t. Are you afraid of a neighbor?

    In general, the cockpits of these helicopters are produced in the Czech Republic at the Aero Vodochody plant. And S-76 is produced, not assembled, namely it is produced in a full cycle, except for engines

    Well, our helicopter builders have a full box of orders for two years. Now the Americans have come to our former "markets" although before all Bulgaria and the Slovak (by the way - the allies of the Germans in both wars) everything was given at symbolic prices, but now we have to survive .. Better to the Arabs, Malaysians.
