This is great that the USCG is upgrading this chopper but I was wondering if anyone knows if you can buy this upgraded version directly from Eurocopter?

The H-60 model's are actually made by Sikorsky (http://www.sikorsky.com). H-60 series are available for purchase in non-militarized formats. Seems like a lot of money to spend on a utilitarian helicopter unless you require that.

The USCG probibly could, but they already own a large number of HH-60s, so why not upgrade some of them? It should be cheaper to do that.

I wonder if he ment the MH-68A's from Agusta? Because the HH-60J are being upgraded to a T's and the HH-65's are all up to C standards (I think they were going to be done by now). Not sure, but I wish the USCG had a few ShinMaywa US-2 flying boats. It might be overkill, but would be neat to see flying boats around

I don't think the USCG has had a flying boat since the HU-16s retired about 35 years the HU-16, ago. The HU-16 entered USAF and USCG service in 1951, IIRC. Before the HU-16, they had the PBY-5 and PBY-6 from about WWII until the early 1960s.

All the 65's are either upgrading to MH-65C and or being prepped to upgrade to MH-65D.

Sounds like the USCG has plans for two additional upgrades, possibly the HH/MH-65E and HH/MH-65F?

I was refering to the Dolphin/Dauhins not the Jayhawks.

Sorry...I was just going off the topic title you put up. I believe you can purchase the helicopter direct with the upgraded engines and systems. If the engines (and I havn't checked yet) are only being used in the Government models, you will have to wait behind them for delivery. If you find out specifics, please let us all know...

Cheers,
