Aircraft manufacturer Sikorsky Aircraft will sell 18 UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters to Mexico in a deal valued at $680 million, which has just been approved by the U.S. government.

According to Reuters, Mexico had previously asked to buy 18 UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters, 40 engines built by General Electric, night vision goggles, weapons and other equipment, in addition to training and logistics support.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Sikorsky’s UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters sold to Mexico will enhance that country’s ability to stage airlift operations for forces who are conducting anti-drug operations.

The deal was announced just ahead of a trip to Mexico by U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Reuters said.
