US Army convinced Boeing to donate helicopters to 30 military

48

The US ground forces have agreed with Boeing to buy the CH-155 Chinook military transport helicopters 47. At the same time, the total price was reduced by $ 810 million, which is equivalent to the cost of 30 combat vehicles.


This was announced by Colonel USAF Bob Marion. A contract worth $ 3,4 billion may be signed as early as May of this year, and production should begin in the 2015 year. Earlier it was reported that this delivery will be the last in the project Chinook, which promise to close by 2020 year. These helicopters have been operated since the beginning of the 1960-ies, for 53, they were exported to 16 countries of the world. Chinook are also produced in Italy and Japan.

There are a number of modifications of these machines, the US Army plans to conclude a contract for the most modern version - CH-47G, with a load capacity of 29,5 tons, which is 30% more than the previous model.

According to the agency Flightglobal MiliCAS, in service with the American Air Force are 513 helicopters Chinook in versions CH-47D and CH-47F. The helicopter develops speed 315 km / h and travels up to 740 km at one gas station. The cargo bay accommodates 55 paratroopers or 24 pairs of stretchers with wounded.

In 1988, the CH-47 transported a Soviet-made Mi-24 helicopter, which was abandoned by the Libyan army in the desert of Chad. The operation was successfully completed, although it was carried out in a sandstorm in the dark. CH-47 traveled 900 kilometers with the Mi-24 on an external sling, while it needed one refueling in the air.

          Well, let the kids boast. There was even a reason for them. And about the failure of the operation to rescue American diplomats in Iran, they quietly sniff in two holes. Although about the supermen, the film was still bungled. Although they were supposed to shoot about something else. BUT failure is the same shame.

      No wonder: 53 years of production, the technology has been debugged, production preparation is not necessary.
      The larger the volume of production, the lower should be the price-law of the market. Only in Russia does this law not always work.

        They have private factories, money is competently invested in re-equipment, complete modernization, hence the quality and price, the private owner monitors tirelessly, and you can spend public money as you like, all the more we all know that there WILL NOT be anything! !! We currently do not release anything in large volumes, if only small arms. This is all from corruption, but it is already slowly getting better!

              2. Mi-8

                        This problem has long been resolved by increasing the inter-hazardous distance and changing the design of the blades themselves, and in general I see the Ka-50 every other day, flights are very often carried out almost 1.5 km outside my window. no incidents though they make such that you will not see at any air show.

    The question is, why do they need helicopters if they cut the budget? They won’t be able to fly without money anyway.

      The helicopter, like any equipment, has a resource .. Stop, you’re a scoop. What to explain to you. You don’t understand anything anyway.

    Glad for my army. New helicopters are always good. Now the new AH-64E for the army will go into full production and it will be very good.
