Four US Army Eurocopter UH-72As from the Nebraska ANG have been deployed to Europe to carry out medevac missions from Hohenfels, Germany.  The Lakotas, from C Company of the 1st Battalion, 376th Aviation Regiment (Security and Support), at Frankfort-Capital City Airport Army Aviation Support Facility, were brought in to support Charlie Company of the 1-214th General Support Aviation Battalion, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, so that the latter unit could focus on participation in Exercise Saber Strike 2018.

The four helicopters (serial numbers 11-72189, 11-72190, 11-72191 and 11-72192) arrived by sea at the port of Bremerhaven, Germany.  They were flown to their temporary base at Hohenfels, from where they were expected to operate until August.
