    Fake News.

    There is no source to this News

    Nothing on US Department of Defence website about the so called embargo. The deal is still posted there delivery is due in August 2018.

    He has a long running relationship with the army and reliable sources within the army. He will not say it without any reason. This news is legitimate.

    Pakistan to Receive US Attack Helicopters in 2017

    The United States will deliver three Bell AH-1Z Viper twin-engine attack helicopters to Pakistan in 2017, according to U.S. media reports, part of a total shipment of 12. The first batch of three helicopters will be delivered in 2017, whereas the remaining nine will arrive in 2018, based on information obtained from Bell Helicopters by aviation journalist Alan Warnes.


    Also as per Quwa reporting

    In June, Bell Helicopter’s Vice President of International Military Sales Rich Harris announced that Pakistan would receive its first three AH-1Z by the end of 2017. The remaining nine will be delivered in 2018.

    So based on the above news, if they are delivered in 2007, then there will be some embargo or restrictions (undisclosed)?

    Even if by any chance they do get delivered, their supply of spare parts and related equipment will be used as leverage to arm twist Pakistan in the future. In 1998 they asked Pakistan to abondon nuclear tests in exchange for F-16's, a puny jet to compromise Pakistan's defence against a nuclear enemy, all because the PAF has an F-16 obsession.

    Availability of funds is not an issue. Funds were available that is why order was placed.

    We need to pursue legal options.

    Availability of funds IS the issue. Order was under FMF. Pakistan Army depleted its FMF allocation or it got stalled by the US Government. Final payments to clear delivery of the AH-1Z are yet to be done. US asked Pakistan to use own funds of apply for a loan. Army refused to use own funds or loan and here we all are
