    Thanks bro.

    more good news on the chopper front:
    http://e-amyna.com/?p=20483

    Basically within the month we expect payment for the first 23 million for the 10 CH-47D and that the program contains option for 5 more (free of charge). The helicopters never deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan and are in good condition. Also there's talk about OH-58Ds but nothing else yet.

    PS. am I the only one that believes that upon receiving the extra CH-47s this year, we should sell all NH90s and use the money for used Blackhawks and Kiowas Warriors?

    i think its unrealistic. Then why not to cancel remaining NH-90 instead?
    OH-58D Kiowa Warrior cant replace NH-90 and if we buy blackhawks we introduce one more type in army aviation helicopters and this will be too much.

    I think the plan is to have 25 Chinooks, 20 NH-90 when deliveries will be completed and 12-15 Kiowa Warriors as scout-recon/light attack helicopters

    I think we ordered more Chinooks because it is impossible to replace old UH-1H /AB-205 helicopters with NH-90s

    I don't think we can cancel at this stage, too late in the order. What I'm saying is selling out all 20 NH90s once they're delivered. Then get our hands on some ex-US Army UH-60 (ca. 40 of them) and progressively dump them Hueys altogether. With 25 Chinooks and 40 Blackhawks, the Army covers it the capacity need for one airmobile battalion transport, in one go, to islands.

    PS. the chat on e-amyna talks about 60 Kiowas in discussion Surprised

    ...Meanwhile Turdkey is the country most responsible for the migrant crisis (from instigating conflicts in the Middle East, to opening the refugee camp flood gates), and yet no Ewwwwww Country....err...E.U. Country has the testicles to hold the Turds accountable. But don't worry, after the Su-24 incident, the Turds are rushing back to their outhouse, oblivious to the fact that the Northern Wind™️ has been accelerating the fuse to the Kurdish powder keg lying underneath it.

    Greece accepts final Type 214 submarines into service

    The Hellenic Navy officially inducted its final two Type 214HN diesel-electric attack submarines into service on 23 June.

    The flag-raising ceremony for HS Matrozos (S-122) and HS Katsonis (S-123) at the Skaramangas Shipyard in Athens finally concluded Greece's troubled Archimedes programme over 15 years after it begun.




    HS Matrozos , whose keel was laid at Skaramangas Shipyards in March 2003, was launched in February 2015 and has been operational since March 2016. HS Katsonis , whose keel was laid in March 2004, is scheduled for sea acceptance trials and should be delivered to the fleet by the end of the year.
