Dude, you can't call them "Blackhawk" anymore.  It's not politically correct.  The accepted term is "African-American Accipiter".

Sikorsky will produce 38 UH-60M Army aircraft and two UH-60M FMS green aircraft in Stratford, Conn., with an estimated completion date of June 30, 2022.

Building 60 helicopters in a little over two years is pretty impressive

Nah, that company bought it for about half a million from the State of Illinois. It was cheap, though, because it had lots of deferred maintenance due to state budget woes.

Didn't they make Soviet helicopters?  This seems unwise.

So we're spending another $500 million on top of the $3.5 billion in the original contract to give the Saudis 290 helicopters instead of 250. Yeah, that seems useful.
