    Sorry for being off topic, but I remember someone mentioning on this forum that Jordan has the most advanced "upgraded" AH-1 attack helos. Is this this true?

    Wish some semi auto versions of the M-4 were imported, also the CZ copy looks nice. Wouldn't mind buying these once I come of age.

    I assume so of non American helis, glass cockpit, brand new optics, ability to fire Hellfire. These are probably as good as the AH-1Zs although they are vastly different because USMCs have 2 engines. Dare say PA could get these upgrades if relations improve with America and hold off on replacing them for at least 20 years.

    Each time I read your name, it reminds me of a sailor screaming in a movie: "Yes Chief, MasterChief" :lol::enjoy:

    Cant remember the name of the movie :p:

    I'm personally not a fan of single engines, I wish PAA would dump them and get new helos ASAP. Till now we (the common man) are still in limbo, as to what will be coming.
