Dear all,

Thanks to @Blacklight, I dug a little deeper and was able to find conclusive evidence that indeed, 5 C-130J's are being acquired. The source of the aircraft is unknown, but 6 squadron appears to be preparing for it.

Also, there have been a 'number' of US bound flights being operated by C-130's in the past 3 weeks. Scheduled all the way until June end, the news of AH-1Z Zulu's return does hold water as @Blacklight mentioned.

I would request the readers to not post this yet on facebook. As it gets muddy and alot of brainless people there start yapping.

I think it is safe to speculate the if's, when's and what's.

I know you're informed members, but I'll believe it when I see it (esp the Zulus). Been dissapointed too many times before.

Looks like Khafee was right, no?
Discussions happen all the time, and some come to fruition.

Unfortunately, many of these discussions also lead to increased efforts by our enemies both across the border, their lobbies and others within the manufacturing country itself to block it.

This time our enemies failed?
