    Sikorsky S-70M Black Hawk

    First announced in 2018 as the commercial name for the S-70i assembled in Poland for the international military market. The S-70M has a weapons system carried by two external wings supporting four weapons stations, which can support any combination of fixed forward 50-cal (12.7mm) gun, 7- or 19-shot Hydra 70 rocket pods, or Hellfireâ„¢ air-to-ground missiles. Additionally, the qualified configuration features pilot-controlled fixed forward or crew served flex fire 7.62-mm mini-guns mounted to both cabin windows.

    In 2019, Sikorsky redesignated the type as a non-militarized UH-60M and to be used in civilian missions such as external cargo and firefighting.

    In December 2021, the S-70M received FAA airworthiness certification. PZL Mielec will build the S-70M and like the S-70i has a digital cockpit, GE 701D engines, and wide chord rotor blades.
