    ISLAMABAD: A high-powered Pakistani defence delegation, headed by Defence Secretary Lt. Gen. (retd) Alam Khattak, has reached Washington D.C. to take part in the 23rd US-Pakistan Defence Consultative Group (DCG) meeting.



    But back to the business of the DCG, where Pakistan is also expected to urge the Americans to sell the upgraded versions of the AH 1F Cobra helicopters.

    Pakistan will try its luck and push for the acquisition of the Cobra Zulu, again. The United States has already disclosed its intent to provide Pakistan eight Global Response Cutters, eight 25 mm or 30 mm naval guns, 32 M-2HB 0.5 mm caliber machine guns, 32 7.62 mm guns including other command and control, navigational and technical equipment all worth around $350 million

    After army chief, Pakistan’s ‘Defendocrats’ woo Washington - thenews.com.pk

    What will happen to T/A-129 ..? Will PA buy both..?

    Although Cobras will be better for PA as they are vastly experienced on this.

    After we get the Russian MI-17 we would be ok for transport needs and some heavy fire power but for long term 10-16 years outlook the chinese option is best , increase the quantity of helicopters and get brand new engines

    this heli not yet completed its delivery to US marine how can they give before that ? but option Pakistan can expect is to upgrade the newer AH-1F to Z standard.

    We need a heli that has following capabilities.

    * A Micromilimeter Radar
    * NVG/HMS
    * Motion Sensors integrated Electro Optical Targeting Turret.

    Our Cobras are way past their age. They can't effectively kill Talidogs in broad day, let alone night.

    If Americans don't want to sell Vipers, they should approve T-129s Engines !

    Yes... But they come from same family so will be easier to get familiarized with.

    Yes... Both Super Hind and Cobras are very good machines in their areas. Good acquisitions by PA.
