That’s all, Huey: Taiwan Edition

Hattip Defense Industry Daily:

Taiwan will retire its UH-1H fleet on October 30. The UH-1 has been in service on the island for 50 years. It will be replaced by the UH-60. According to local reports, the Army officially confirmed that it will decommission the UH-1H on October 30. The Ministry of Defense will hold a decommissioning ceremony. The UH-60 is a four-blade twin-engine medium-lift utility helicopter. In 2017, Sikorsky won a $135.4 million Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract by the Republic of China Army for the manufacture of 24 Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk utility helicopters. Taiwan is a mountainous island surrounded by ocean. This helicopter is perfect for a rescue mission in the mountains at the altitudes above 2,000 meters or out at sea in nighttime. Its best feature is nighttime reconnaissance.

Notably, the USAF still has some 60-ish 1970s vintage UH-1N Hueys still on hand for use in carrying security forces guys around ICBM fields. These are set to be replaced by 84 Boeing MH-139s (an upgraded version of the AgustaWestland AW139) starting in 2021.
