The United States approved the delivery of "Chinook" helicopters in South Korea

17

The Defense Cooperation Cooperation Agency DSCA (Defense Security Cooperation Agency) approved the sale to the Republic of Korea of ​​14 CH-47D Chinook transport helicopters manufactured by Boeing for a total of $ 151 million. This was announced by the American weekly "Defense News".


In a statement that was published as part of the FMS foreign military assistance program, DSCA announced that helicopter shipments to the Republic of Korea would begin immediately after US troops received new CH-47 helicopters in modification F. Expected that the supply process of the new helicopter cars of the American army will begin in January 2014.

Currently, X-NUMX helicopters CH-14D, which will be handed over to the South Korean side, are part of the US Army contingent in the Republic of Korea. T47-GA-55A engines will be shipped from army warehouses located at Camp Humphrey, located in the southern part of the Republic of Korea.

It is assumed that the US Army will not replace these 14 helicopters with other machines, thus avoiding the cost of transporting and demilitarizing equipment, the estimated cost of which is 13,4 million dollars.

The CH-47D helicopters will be used by the South Korean side in carrying out the tasks of troop deployment, evacuation of the wounded, rescue of the failed aviation equipment, airborne assault support, search and rescue operations (SAR), assistance in case of mass disasters, fire fighting, and ensuring large-scale construction work.

In June, 2013, the Boeing company, announced that it had discussed with the Republic of Korea the conditions for the possible supply of both modernization kits and new CH-47 Chinook helicopters. According to the company, the ground forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan currently have CH-23D / DLR 47 helicopters and HN-5D 47 helicopters that are used to carry out combat search and rescue operations.

    That is, they are selling "used". Well what do you say - well done, you need to study. This is how to sell "castoffs" and still do so that you would be "grateful" to the grave ...

    Only here is the nuance. Chinook - cars are very, very good, functional and just look impressive. What’s necessary in general is the Republic of Kazakhstan, provided that despite the large number of conscripted armies, the local politicians (as by the way in Nihonia) will give command, if not completely military operations, to the Americans, in case of pah-pah, which or conflict. So the Koreans are nailing a bunch of hares - the convenience of servicing equipment by American and NATO specialists, the convenience of American consultants and educators, and, of course, sneak up on America.

    You might think that the US Department of Defense’s defense cooperation and security agency DSCA could refuse Korea. They will now give weapons to all of China’s neighbors

    In technical terms, you know better, but about "they look impressive" ... personally, I have a completely different impression: some kind of flat box takes off when already on the ground - it looks like a choking shark thrown onto land ... "muzzle" like -like front and back. In appearance, there is nothing elegant, it looks rough, and you cannot take your eyes off Russian helicopters - both menacing and beautiful. Well, this is my personal impression from their Chinook.

    for $ 151 million they sold what, in theory, they should have disposed of. A very pragmatic approach.

    I have a question for specialists:
    What is the life of the CH-47
    what year built helicopters for sale
    How much does such a new helicopter cost for Japan? (regional price)

    - More dependent on flying hours. And so the car is strong and will fly without problems for 40 years.
    - Somewhere in the 80s. It is not known when they were withdrawn to the reserve for storage, but most likely 6-8 years ago, when the American contingent in South Korea was reduced, and the equipment was stored.
    - Not in the know for Japan, but the well-known Indian contract of 15 cars for about $ 1 billion. The Turks also asked for new "F" - 14 pieces for 1,2 billion. Canadians have 15 cars for 1,15 billion. Greece took the same used CH-47Ds at 5 million apiece.

    How did they get the idea that Chinook is worth $ 13,4 million? 151 million divided into 14 helicopters, you get 10 785 714 dollars. And Afghanistan, the United States bought the Russian Mi-24 helicopters each for 15-16 million dollars. It turns out that one of the Americans warmed up his hands well on the Mi-24 purchase transaction

      You read the article more carefully - 13,4 million is not the cost of the Chinook, but the price of demilitarization and transportation of all 14 vehicles to scrap.
      And what does the Mi-24 have to do with Afghanistan? This is generally a different class of helicopters.

        But the fact is that the US State Department, after purchasing helicopters for Afghanistan, figured out why Chinooks were not purchased from Boeing instead of Mi-24, one could buy these helicopters for a lower price (for 13-14 million, instead of 15-16 million for Mi-24). The article seemed to be here in military review.

          Are you confusing anything? Mi-24 attack helicopter, CH-47 heavy transport. These are generally different cars. Maybe all the same, the article was about Mi-17?

        Transportation and demilitarization cannot cost $ 13,4 million. Transportation from the United States to South Korea can cost several thousand dollars. Well, let it be several tens of thousands of dollars. Although the sea on container ships will generally cost a penny for the United States. To remove machine guns from helicopters is also a penny. Because helicopters are hardly equipped with other weapons. So we are talking about the cost of helicopters.

          As for the can-can not argue with the article. This figure is indicated in black and white. I fully admit that all measures to bring cars to the trash can cost a round sum.
