Daines Announces Malmstrom to Receive Grey Wolf Helicopter Upgrade in March

U.S. Senator Steve Daines today announced that Malmstrom Air Force Base will receive the MH-139 “Grey Wolf” helicopter upgrade replacing the Vietnam-era UH-1N “Huey’s” in March. Malmstrom will be the first Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) base in the country to receive this critical upgrade. The news follows Daines’ direct request and extensive work since 2020 to secure the upgraded helicopters for Montana.

“Montana has the best airmen and facilities in the country and the Grey Wolf will be right at home at Malmstrom. I was proud to start advocating for the replacement of the Vietnam-era Huey’s back in 2020 and am grateful to see these efforts finally come to fruition,” Daines said.
