Two more American Black Hawk helicopters are arriving in Croatia today. Handover is being organized at the Franjo Tuđman International Airport. The first two helicopters were donated by the US Government, and these two arriving today were purchased by Croatia in a package worth 85 million dollars.

Helicopters, in addition to traditional military tasks, can also be used to help civil institutions - for extinguishing large forest fires, search and rescue, and emergency medical transport.


This is all in accordance with the project to equip the Croatian Armed Forces with helicopters of Western technology, which began in December 2018 in cooperation with the American government.
