The U.S. Army has exercised USD65.8 million in contract options for 12 additional Airbus Helicopters UH-72A Lakota helicopters and associated mission equipment packages.

The UH-72A Lakota was selected in 2006 for a broad range of active U.S. Army and U.S. Army National Guard missions, including training, search and rescue, medical evacuation, border security, command and control, VIP transport and general utility.

The 12 aircraft on this latest contract option will be delivered starting in August of 2017, configured for the army as initial entry rotary-wing trainers.
