On Wednesday, the relevant US government department that operates within the US Department of Defense reported that Washington plans to sell nine Black Hawk airborne transport helicopters to Saudi Arabia, as well as related equipment, including navigation systems and weapons worth about $ 495 million dollars, TASS.




The report notes that permission to implement the agreement, which, in accordance with national legislation, issued by the US Department of State, has already been received. On Tuesday, the US administration officially notified the US Congress of its decision to export this military equipment. The US legislative branch now has 30 days to explore the new arms contract with Riyadh and possibly block it.

        I think these are not competitors even to the old Mi-24, so the help (possible) of the IG, the eaten up egg is not worth it. Apparently the partner made an offer to buy junk, but there was no where to put the money.

    half a billion for 9 birds ??? this along the way, taking into account the triple kickbacks and bribes of everyone and everything along the way ... The price is prohibitive ...

      The price includes the estimated dollar inflation. The mattresses are losing their positions, they themselves understand this. Well, how in the very near future for a dollar tip can you get rid of even a waiter in Nigeria?

    Immediately the film remembered "The Fall of the Black Hawk." Cool movie. A DVD with a film takes one of the places on the shelf.

    Fuss has begun, taking this opportunity, some want to bargain with something to please earn money, while others get kickbacks on this. Business, nothing personal?

    Several dozen Cuban soldiers and officers will soon arrive in Damascus to help the army of Bashar al-Assad. This is written by Al-Jazeera. According to the publication, their main task in Syria will be training local soldiers and recruits in the use of weapons and control of various types of equipment.

    The US legislative branch now has 30 days to study a new arms contract with Riyadh and its possible blocking.

    And the Saudis thought that money was in the morning, and chairs in the evening. Something like that...

    KSA urgently needed to untie their hands in Yemen. Helicopters against guerrilla units - the most effective way.

    Who explained to me ...
    For a long time they write that the Saudis “threw off” oil prices in order to ruin American business in this direction. The same article mentions deliveries, albeit in which the Yankees are interested in the arms trade.
    Here ... our situation reminds me when Poroshenko hates us fiercely, and today he saw Roshen candies on the counter, and my Novosibirsk is not close to Ukraine, our government is only dealing with the question "HOW TO REDUCE THE GAS PRICES OF THE COUNTRY, which give nuclear weapons - would destroy without hesitation ...
    Oh and "diplomacy", but her mosquito, in the best forms of betrayal ...

      I think this is for the operation in Yemen. It's time to put MANPADS there.

    If this is for a "skirmish" in Yemen, then it is reasonable, but if for ISIS ... A waste of money.
