What a waste of money and time these hand-me-downs Lynxes were.
The irony with the Lynxes is that Leonardo is offering the PN the AW159.

IMHO, the PN's still holding out for the Sea Hawk-series in some form (e.g., used, TAI T-70s, or new MH-60Rs).

Even if we account for the risk of sanctions, supporting the S-70/MH-60-series is relatively tenable thanks to the abundance of worldwide operators and its widely available inputs (e.g., GE T700-series engines).

Why not buy the Chinese one?? This is one area I think we should buy from Iron Brother. What's the hold up?

hmm...if you're referring to the Z-20-based one, I don't think that's available for export yet. Otherwise, more Z-9ECs is certainly a possibility (if not likely).

I was reading on Quora that Mi171 is more of a robust workhorse when it comes to sheer cargo lifting capabilities than the Blackhawk platform

How would you compare and contrast the two?
