The USA delivered to Turkey the last batch of four CH-47F Chinook military transport helicopters, thereby delivering to the customer all 11 helicopters within the framework of the agreement concluded between the countries.

As previously reported, Turkey requested the United States to supply 14 Chinook helicopters as early as 2009 as part of the Foreign Military Sales program. The deal was valued at 1,2 billion dollars. In addition to helicopters, the supply should include related equipment and maintenance services. However, in the middle of the 2010 year, Turkey, due to the lack of sufficient funds, reduced the order to 11 machines. In the same 2010, the US Congress approved the sale of CH-47F Chinook helicopters to the Turkish military.

The construction of a batch of rotorcraft for Turkey began in the 2011 year. The delivery of helicopters was carried out under two contracts: according to the first, Turkey received 6 helicopters from July to the end of the 2016 year, according to the second one helicopter was delivered 25 on August 2018 of the year, and another four 31 on July.

According to the Turkish Ministry of Defense, six CH-47F Chinook helicopters were delivered in the interests of the Ground Forces, four for the Special Operations Forces (MTR) and one will be used by the Ministry of Defense to transport VIPs.

Turkey became the 19-th country that adopted the US Chinook helicopters into service.

    How does this Chinook feel in the mountains of Afghanistan? Or does he also need greenhouse conditions?

    For the third day, negotiations between Turkey and the United States are under way in Ankara on a new project - the "Corridor of Peace", which Erodgan announced after the General Council about a week ago. As far as I remember, Turkey wants 3 x 32 km, and the US first wanted 140 km, then made a discount - 5 km; today there will be results. I think they will agree, it's not in vain that the ship with the helicopter arrived in Izmir today. We'll find out before the evening. The USA actively supports the interest of the Kurdish terrorists. The Kurds are terrorists for them a conveniently controlled object, nothing more.

    in general, of course, a curious machine: the ass is clearly overweight, with the expected lower efficiency of the rear rotor of the same diameter as the front

    Everyone around us is arming, but they don’t know what to do about it. This is evidenced by the sequence of acquisition of samples of military equipment in Turkey, including. I think very soon our S-400 will be under a scalpel ... somewhere in Texas.
    If people do not have a clue about values, then the question of their venality is always measured in money.
    Putin is not eternal, and the S-400 is already paid.
    And what else of what has no price has already been paid for by miserable handouts from behind a hill?
