Greece announces purchase of Chinook helicopters

50
The Greek military has officially announced the purchase of used Boeing CH-10D Chinook transport helicopters in the United States in the US, reports Military Parity with reference to janes.com.




The amount of the transaction - $ 125,8 million. The permission from the Greek government to conclude a contract was received at the end of 2013. The State Department approved the sale of 2014 in December.

"Currently, Greece is negotiating with international lenders who demand to ban any major defense projects until the completion of the country's financial rescue program," writes the resource.

Apparently, it was possible to agree on something, because, according to janes.com, "the first installment in the payment of the contract can be made before the end of 2015 of the year." The entire amount must be paid before 2022.

      If the Greeks bought helicopters, for example, in Russia, then this would not be possible, but in the USA - it is possible!

      Even during Desert Storm, the Americans did not hesitate to calculate how much they saved on shooting outdated missiles in Iraq compared to the cost of their disposal. The numbers turned out to be huge! So here too - to drive the trash is always more profitable than spending money on disposal ...

      This is all lies. The S-400 complex is noise-resistant. CORAL REB can, at best, reduce the distance of target detection to our air defense systems and nothing more.

      Turkish EW CORAL has been transferred to the border, but no one has yet written that it is turned on, that it acts and how it acts on our VKS. Our military is flying and this electronic warfare has not yet felt on itself. It is unlikely that airplanes would fly blindly and without the protection of the C-400 and fighters.
      If this electronic warfare began to act and, say, effectively against Russia, then the Western media would not just write about this, but would “yell” at the top of their lungs. For now, silence.

        Not work out for them anyway.
        For the first time, the Murmansk-BN electronic warfare complex was used as part of a sudden check of the combat readiness of the Russian Armed Forces and the electronic warfare units of the Northern Fleet.

        Four such Murmansk-BN electronic warfare systems were deployed in Sevastopol, and are currently capable of intercepting and suppressing any short-wave radio communication lines in the tactical command and control units of the enemy at a distance of 5 kilometers.

        Also, the purpose of the complex is to counteract the electronic warfare systems of a potential enemy.

        Apparently, they will not allow the Turks to jam our S-400 radars

    in the military sphere, buying used equipment is a common thing. The Russian Federation also does this, but for some reason no one publishes angry screams about this. The Chinook car is strong, reliable, very "volatile" and with timely repair and extension of the resource can be operated for several decades (I recently watched a program about the history of the only surviving British Chinook ZA718 "Bravo November" in the Falklands, and so it flies to this day, including including in Afghanistan and will fly for a long time, although he is already over 33 years old)
