Lebanon makes request for Huey IIs

Lebanon makes request for Huey IIs

The government of Lebanon has requested the purchase of Huey II helicopters from the US.

According to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), Lebanon wants six Huey IIs as well as equipment, parts, training and logistical support. The deal could be worth up to $63 million.

The DSCA says the deal will provide Lebanon with 'necessary mobility capabilities to maintain internal security, enforce United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1559 and 1701, and counter terrorist threats.’

The aircraft will operate alongside Lebanon's current fleet of UH-1H helicopters.

The DSCA added that the proposed sale will 'enable Lebanon to meet present and future challenges posed by internal and border security threats, evacuations, search and rescue, and drug interdiction operations’.
