Sikorsky bags $1.1 billion Pentagon deal

Sikorsky will be making 12 CH-53K King Stallion helicopter for the U.S. military with deliveries to commence in 2022.

In a statement, the Pentagon said, it has awarded a $1.1 billion contract to Sikorsky, a unit of Lockheed Martin Corp, for 12 CH-53K King Stallion helicopters, including logistics and other support systems.

Sikorsky said it will build the helicopters at its Connecticut plant; deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2022.

The CH-53K, which offers three times the carrying power of its predecessor, made its international debut at the Berlin Air Show in April 2018. It competes with Boeing’s twin-rotor CH-47 Chinook helicopter which is being sold to Germany for around $4.46 billion (4 billion euros).
