UH, UH…

vara bungas: Pateicoties “pipara”  acīgumam un reakcijai varam salīdzināt LT un LV UH-60M iepirkumus. Zemāk apkopojums par līdzībām un atšķirībām ar hipersaitēm uz aprakstiem, kādus atradu. Secinājumi diemžēl acīmredzami ne par labu LV aizsardzības spējām. Vēršu uzmanību, ka LT pērk klāt  ne tikai helikopteru apbruņojumu, kas ļautu demonstrēt(!) kareivīgumu, bet arī  aizsardzības līdzekļus pret PGA sistēmām, kas nozīmē, ka LT plāno karot (!) pret līdzvērtīgu pretinieku, ne tikai vizināt VIPus .

  •  four (4) UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters in standard USG configuration with designated unique equipment and Government Furnished Equipment (GFE),

  1. As far as I understand, Latvia is buying these helicopters more for civilian duties (SAR, firefighting, patrol and transport) than combat activities. I did wonder why your military decided to choose such an expensive platform. I mean, Estonia purchased AW139 for much cheaper and uses them for similar things, and even that purchase was criticized for being unnecessarily expensive (especially running costs). For example, Lithuania purchased Dauphins for similar tasks.

    • “more for civilian duties” that is unfortunately right, but as we hope (!) in future they would be upgraded for combat missions. can you upgrade Augustas?

      • As the Augustas are part of a civilian organization (police), then there is obviously no intention to arm or upgrade them. And what would the point be anyway? It seems like a rather niche requirement, or something which doesn’t have a big cost-to-benefit ratio. Let’s be fair, 200 million dollars (or 380 million for that matter) is a huge sum, which could be used on tons of much more useful armament. That cost is likely in the same class as equiping two brigades with armored personnel carriers, which is the long-term dream/plan for Estonia.

  2. LT ir lohi. Neko no tā papildus aprīkojuma nevajag lai pārvestu smagi slimos + meklētu sēņotājus / kaitotājus.
