The US Army's Special Operations Forces is to equip its 37 Sikorsky MH-60L Black Hawk helicopters with in-flight refuelling probes by April 2004. This will bring the helicopters in line with newer MH-60Ks and Boeing MH-47D/Es. The helicopters, operated by the 160th Special Operations Air Regiment, are the only army machines equipped for in-flight refuelling.
