Gallery: Taiwan’s shiny new Black Hawks

Our Asia-Pacific editor (and all round nice bloke) Gordon Arthur has been in Taiwan this week to watch the country’s annual Han Kuang war games. While there, he’s managed to get some fantastic shots of the Republic of China Army’s (ROCA) newest aviation asset, the UH-60M Black Hawk.

For indepth coverage of Taiwan’s Han Kuang exercise, see Gordon’s full story here.

From a total of 60 UH-60M ordered, the army will eventually receive 45 and the rest will go to the National Airborne Service Corps (NASC), which performs non-military missions. The NASC Black Hawks are currently sporting a very trendy red paint scheme but in wartime it would be repainted black and additional military kit fitted.

Here’s a selection of photos, all copyright to Gordon Arthur and Shephard Media.
