The first batch of Apache Guardian helicopters arrived in South Korea


“In April 2013, the Defense Procurement Programs Agency of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Korea (DAPA) chose Boeing as the winner of the tender for the supply of XHUMX AH-36E Apache Guardian attack helicopters under the AH-X program,” the publication reminds.

As previously reported, “the aim of the AH-X program is to fill the gap until Korea Aerospace Industries completes the development of a new generation of national attack helicopters KAH (Korea Attack Helicopter) with a foreign partner and the new generation.”

KAH and AH-X will replace the outdated MD-500 / TOW "Difender" and AH-1S "Cobra" machines.

The contract for the supply of AH-64E helicopters must be fully executed by Boeing by the year 2018. Its value is $ 1,6 billion (1,8 trillion won).

According to TSAMTO, "the agreement also provides for the supply of related equipment, maintenance of the equipment supplied and the training of personnel."

    It is necessary for their "northern brothers" to supply the antidote for the Apaches in the required quantities laughing

      Their brothers in the north need food and medicine first, not your "antidote."

        Dear, who personally saw the Apache in the air? I saw it many times. The only thing I can say is that the sound from it sounded like a rustle. Quietly flies. Very quiet. And the Iroquois is about the same size as my mother rumbles. It is not it can be seen, but already audible. And it flies barely, barely. I’m silent about the transport "Chinook" and "CH-53", the last generally transcendent barn !!! Barely, barely flying. Such an impression was always that, behold, it will collapse.

        Kim's fans are dreaming of delivering Armata, Su-35, T-50 PAK FA, Tu-160, MiGi-35 tanks and infantry fighting vehicles to the DPRK, but more, more laughing

          Who is he (Kim) holding back there? Do not tell ... While he is allowed to play war games - he plays, and he plays - they pull him, if not the United States, so China ... He has a buffer - which suits everyone, but will not suit everyone - there will not be this buffer. Therefore, talking about Kim as a deterrent (!) Is ridiculous.

      Why are the "northern brothers" here, and even in quotation marks? One nation - and such irony on your part ... request

      And regarding the delivery of our helicopters - let them buy, even South, even North Koreans - let them pay for the main thing.

      And here you need to choose, either life as in a fairy tale, or your own powerful military-industrial complex. In the world there are very few countries capable of both. Most likely, one country is able to design / produce from a bullet to ICBMs and simultaneously pull a heavy social strap.

        South Korea has the most powerful military-industrial complex (tanks, missiles. Ships, planes). Just the scale and knowledge are not the same.

      They already have a military-industrial complex and not weak.
      With the rapid pace of difference that Korea is chopping now, a combat helicopter
      they will be able to do years through 10. And a combat plane too.

        In fact, all Korean tenders provided for a detailed acquaintance with the technologies for the production of helicopters, and the transfer of those was also a prerequisite for the winner. So "friendly help" in the production of national armaments plays the first role here rather than the achievements of the Korean designers.

          Koreans always do that, and rightly so.
          15 years ago they stood with bated breath behind our specialists
          on electronics and programmers who came to Korea on business trips - studied.
          And now they are smiling condescendingly, as if:
          "learn, kibbutzniks, with us how to design."

        There is a reason, who argues with this (he is always there, there would be a desire), I mean that the legs of the purchase are growing from overseas, the parliament just would not approve such a purchase - there is also a military industrial complex. But "threats demand to immediately start rearmament" there is no time to wait for our own developments

    You know, I visited my brothers in the north, I didn’t notice anything special with food, by the way, sellers in Russian, though through a stump deck, understand Russian, but I can say about medicines that hospitals in Pyongyang are better than ours in Moscow. And with zelenka and analginum, they, too, are all right.

    You correctly noticed it, I think that you could. It's just that the owners of the overseas then don’t get money for the sale of their rotisserie, so they, the owners, held on to the reins of the presumptuous pet.
