From my files concerning the Pakistani AH-1Z. Before I post the refs I have I would kindly ask everyone's indulgence in...

1) The AH-64E to export countries will be no different than tit is for AH-1Z or ABRAMS or any other advanced U.S. piece of equipment.

2) From last Sep., please review Posts 63 & 64 of this thread. Those JANE's refs. are likely "dead" now but, as posted many times before, JANE's refs are "perishable" and you either act on them in a timely fashion or as I've been doing, build credible refs around them while active.

A) Also with ref. below note the delivery from Russian of the Mi-35M which is the most advanced version of the Mi-24 HIND. The Mi-35M is in the game with Brazil and I believe I also submitted it for Russia as well since they got them around 3yrs. ago. Also addresses various equipment and weapons to be sold to them as well. The TI/GSR levels addressed per Posts 63 & 64 with a minor - in EW as well as seen fit. FOC I would think around APR or JUN 2018. Though I have not checked, I believe the Pakistanis already fly the Mi-24 so assuming they get their Mi-35M helos by JAN 2018, I believe FOC should occur around APR/MAY 2018. The more advanced systems and weapons being the delaying factor here.

I have a couple more if needed. Thanks for the diversion!

We have had the pleasure of Irma's company here in what I believe was the hardest hit county in Ga. We feel so privileged. At least we still have our house. Hope all affected in this forum and there are quite a few of you, made it through safely.

Regards,
Pat

The first four UH-60 Black Hawks for the Afghan Air Force (AAF) were delivered to Kandahar airport on Monday.

http://www.tolonews.com/afghanistan/...e-kandahar-aaf

The Afghan OOB (orbat26) has the S70 Blackhawk (unit 123) in it. Is there any evidence that they are present?

I believe ( it's been a long time....) those were added as available to the Afghans for missions but actually US equipment

NOTE
http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/0...113759934.html

The Afghan air force has received its first Blackhawk helicopters from the US, in the latest step towards modernising its fleet.

Afghanistan still relies heavily on US airpower, but Afghans are beginning to carry out some operations themselves.

The new hardware arrives today, but it will take months before the aircraft can be used, and years before the air force can operate entirely on its own.

I found a few things in the October issue of Air Forces magazine that may be of value.

Egypt received 3 Ka-52s in July and 3 more in August. 9 more are to be delivered by the end of the year with a total of 46 to be received over the next two years.

Slovakia took delivery of 2 UH-60M Blackhawks in August and has 7 more on order.

Pakistan received 4 Mi-35Ms in July.

Afghanistan is to begin receiving UH-60A+ Blackhawks in early October to replace their Mi-17s. 53 are on order so far to be delivered over the next 18 months with a total requirement for 159.

The Argentine Ministry of Defence has accepted 20 Augusta-Westland AB 206 military helicopters that will be assigned to the Army Aviation Directorate. The handover ceremony took place in Italy. Some of the helos will be fitted with GAU-17 miniguns and 70mm rockets once they arrive in Argentina.

It's a detail, but helo weapon Russian #173 4x57mm S-5K has HE pen=0, while #154 2x57mm S-5K has 1 (correct, I think).

Same for Polish weapon #188 4x57mm S-5K, and possibly others using helo version of 4x57mm.
