"The best in the world": trump sold American helicopters to India


India has decided to acquire American weapons systems totaling several billion dollars. This was stated by the head of the White House Donald trump during his visit to this country.


Commenting on the growing economic ties between the two states, the US president explained that he was optimistic about concluding a comprehensive trade deal with New Delhi and called for a joint fight against terrorism.

As Trump noted, the new arms supply agreements relate to U.S. military helicopters:

It was a very productive visit for both of our countries [...] We expanded our defense cooperation with agreements on the sale of advanced American military equipment to India by more than $ 3 billion, including Apache and MH-60 Romeo helicopters, the best in the world.


We are talking about the purchase of 24 sea-based multipurpose rotary-wing aircraft MH-60R Seahawk and 6 shock Apache.

These deals will strengthen our joint defense capabilities as our military continues to train and act side by side.

- said the American president.

According to the head of the Cabinet, Narendra Modi, together with Trump, it was decided to move to a new stage in the interaction of the two countries, reaching "a comprehensive global strategic partnership" - "the most important partnership of the XNUMXst century."

    reaching a “comprehensive global strategic partnership”

    They prepare cannon fodder in future butts with China ...
    So, they said to Russia - “scat from the field with your glands, pot-bellied little thing, go love China”
    Quite expected ...

      The USA has no friends. There are only "sixes" and that, only as long as needed. And then, as the saying goes: "Nothing personal - just business."

        Countries have no friends, it's like talking about the chemical valency of a stool.
        And the United States in advance put together an anti-Chinese block - the ring. The question is now in Pakistan. In their place there is another question: who better to "surrender" to China or the United States.

          And those of whom the block is knocked together do not understand that their role is a well-known disposable rubber product. For example, Banderland, much more eloquent. But there they already began to understand that they were used - they can’t do anything yet.

      Why Russia is a "pot-bellied little thing", just, really, India, being an adversary of China, is gradually switching to other weapons systems

        India, being an adversary of China ...,

        Is everyone blind? US threat comes from China's economy. Not India, not Russia ... And the US task now is to put together a hostile ring around China.
        Want to lift sanctions? Tomorrow, they will complete the northern flows 2-3-4, oblige everyone to recognize Crimea and buy Russian gas and oil, and Georgians with Belarusians and Ukraine and the Baltic states to join the USSR. Just fit in against China, become cannon fodder and lock the ring. They will even leave Russia arms contracts in India so that the pants do not fall off.
        And the opponents of India-China ... are ridiculous. Their claims will be resolved in 5 minutes, be they allies against the United States.

          China and India have never been and will not be allies, they are full of regional problems, the US is not concerned about the Chinese economy, which they, among other things, created, first developing China as a counterweight to the USSR, and then reaping the benefits of the global dollar economy, but an independent PRC policy aimed at leadership in the Asia-Pacific region, and possibly in other regions.
          Here, the interests of the USA coincide with the interests of India, which also claims to be a leader in the region.

        What is there to be able to do. "they won’t take it, turn off the gas," sorry to shut off oxygen, in the sense, easily, under a plausible pretext, they can arrest Indian currency assets in American banks. With such a "club", doing business is very simple. And customers are always more accommodating. lol

    Under the terms of this contract, India handed over to Afghanistan 2 Mi-25 combat helicopters - from the availability - after the start of deliveries to India of the American Ap-An-64E ... Altogether, 4 helicopters will be returned. As part of the “offset”, Indian enterprises placed an order for the production of components for Apaches (the entire program). In addition, the United States included India in the list of its leading partners in the military-technical cooperation and granted it an appropriate status, which allows it to gain access without a license to a wide range of US military and dual-use technologies.

      Today is 2020. Even barmalei or Hussites in slippers successfully bring down ANY helicopters with the help of MANPADS. Against regular troops (with the presence of willows, needles and stingers) losses will be unacceptable, turntables can beat defenseless people, not a professional army.

        It all depends on the tactics of application. There are people in the army too. They do not stand for 24 hours with MANPADS on the shoulder.
        Americans love to attack at night. In this they are the best.
        And no other army can boast of such a level.
        At night, at low altitude, hiding behind the relief they give out salvos of SDs.
        What will your well-trained regular army do?
        To each night vision and night watch?

          Your example does not take into account one thing - well done against the sheep, but against the well done the sheep himself. Have you seen enough on YouTube how at night a caravan with donkeys was shot? And only Americans know about the terrain and you? Is the air defense of the army unit a lonely kid with pnv tired of the weight of the mdg?
