The aviation program office announced that the US Army’s upgraded UH-60V Black Hawk completed initial operational tests and evaluation (IOT&E). Completing IOT&E is a significant step forward for the UH-60V program as it moves closer to full-rate production.


The “V” model Black Hawk is an upgraded model of the UH-60L version and includes the installation of Northrop Grumman’s new digital cockpit and integrated avionics suite. The Army requested $178.7 million to acquire 28 kits for the UH-60V program in its fiscal 2023 budget request.
