Mitsubishi to produce 40 UH-60Js under licence

Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) will produce 40 Mitsubishi/Sikorsky UH-60J search and rescue helicopters for the Japan air self-defence force, replacing 40 existing UH-60Js that have been in service since 1991. Eurocopter's EC725 and the AugustaWestland AW101 have also been considered, but dropped in favour of the Sikorsky product.
