Lockheed Martin subsidiary Sikorsky Aircraft is selling four Black Hawk military helicopters to the government of Latvia, with the deal winning approval from Congress.

Latvia wants the aircraft for a range of missions in conjunction with U.S. and NATO forces including antiterrorism operations and medical evacuation.
