    I think Pakistan has only paid ($57.9 million) for 2 helicopters so if USA embargoes it is not a big deal.

    "The notification by the US DoD stated that 10% ($57.9 million) of the overall contract value covered the sale to the government of Pakistan which suggests that this is an initial deal for the first two helicopters only, with contracts for the remaining 13 (plus spares and support) to follow."

    Please correct me If I am missing any thing here.

    question is why did they on the first place? why they wasted 1 billion on just 12/13 light attack helicopters.....

    Didnt these people already know? didnt they already anticipated this after the f16 saga of 1990?

    But there r plenty of American products n companies working in Pakistan like KFC, McDonalds, PEPSI CO, Cokacola etc etc, Pizza Huts n all

    Time to punish them as revenge, and take our money back from them or ceasing their assets like their fined Habib Bank Ltd.

    Why should generals not be court marshalled on this? Every single one of them who was involved in the deal should be thrown behind bars.
    I remember during Musharraf era when he wanted to go for the J-10s but PAF refused and instead asked to go for the F-16s. People with such mentality should have no place in Pakistan's decision making process. They should be thrown out.

    What you are missing is the Main objective.

    The money was hardly taxpayers money.

    This is an aggravation.

    LOL Haji Sahib I think this news is being played opposite. The money went from Collation support fund which was already US money and After the T-129 deal with turkey I don't think Pakistan has any need for Viper and USA is face saving because we rejected viper. But until there is no official source story cannot be verified.

    Bhai did we paid for it or was it from collation Support fund? Do you know any thing. Is there any announcement from US DOD?

    Court marshaled is too simple. There should be a Roman decimation of the complicit "leadership". And all those who have escaped to foreign countries, there should be a division of the ISI organized to either kidnap and rendition them, or torture and kill them outright.

    Pakistan need to think twice about buying Turkish gunship. It is using American engine. Turkish are no where about to produced a replacement soon. If American can sanction viper to Pakistan. Why would they not sanction engine re export to PA?

    The only option left is to buy Chinese gunship or Russian.

    Engines are not Americans in T-129 they are from UK and there more MPs of Pakistani origin in UK than there are British Mps

    Sorry my mistake engine is manufactured by Tusaş Engine Industries It is Turkish engines.

    Sorry, the engine are imported. I don't know where u got your source. The engine are Honeywell and it's American.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/LHTEC_T800

    It is a 50/50 joint venture between rolls royce and Honeywell of USA. The American definitely has the power to sanction this engine to 3rd party.
