    - And what is the reason for replacing Russian helicopters with American ones. Are those better?

      This is primarily due to:
      1) the Czech Republic joins NATO, and NATO is led by the Pentagon;
      2) The Pentagon and the US military-industrial complex need to earn capital - and so they expand their arms market at the expense of European countries;
      3) the Czech army also becomes not the national army of the Czech Republic, but it is the American-punitive colonial army from the outside and to protect the national interests of the United States.

    For 12 helicopters .. A little expensive .. Even if we take into account various additional equipment.
