On April 9, 2011 Swedish secretary of Defense, Sten Tolgfors, announced the purchase of 15 UH-60M Black Hawk via an US Army FMS (Foreign Military Sale) program. Known as the Hkp 16, they will fill the gap between the retirement of the Hkp 4 and the fully deployment of the Hkp 14. Sikorsky is building and delivering all 15 aircraft to an accelerated 18-month production schedule that began in May 2011. Seven aircraft are on schedule for delivery to the US Army between September through December 2011, with the remaining eight through the fall of 2012. The plan will enable Sweden to deploy three of them to ISAF Afghanistan in April 2013.
The first 2 Hkp16 were delivered to 2.Hkpskv squadron in December 2011 and the last helicopter was received in April 2013. The same month 4 Black Hawks (ICEPAC unit) were deployed to Camp Marmal, Afghanistan in replacement of 2 Super Puma that were operated for 2 years.
