I do believe the USA is retiring the OH-58 as of the FY2015 budget. Not sure how that would impact a Greek deal or not.


The UH-72 Lakota (pictured above) is slated as a replacement. So, I am not sure if it would be a good deal for Greece to buy a retired scout platform when the Lakota could do scout, reconnaissance and SF insertion.

Currently, the The AH64-D and AH-64E are due to perform scout and recon roles as well as attack and ground support until sufficient numbers of Lakotas enter service.

The wild card is the Sikorsky S-97 bird (pictured below), however, I do not think it will get the Army's nod.

Looks a lot like the cancelled Lockheed AH-56 Cheyenne.

The clow, the defense minister, is at it again, perhaps he does mean it after all.
