STRATFORD, Conn., Sept. 17 (UPI) — The final two of 15 Sikorsky UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters are expected to be delivered to the U.S. Army this month for Sweden.

Sweden ordered the helicopters, which will support its deployment of troops and assets to Afghanistan, through the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program. The aircraft were produced at a record pace.
