US approves sale of 12 AH-1Z attack helicopters without engines to a unnamed customer . The unnamed customer is said had tried to procure T-129 from Turkey some days ago but failed. The sale was approved on the condition that those AH-1Z would never be equipped with engines.

What is the use of airframes without engines and condition that it will never be equipped with engine. Is the customer buying it for putting it in Museum?

It just says 12 helicopters
Doesn't necessarily have to be brand new
Maybe cannibalize for spares and parts
Just maybe

The Philippines was cleared last year to buy both Apache and Super Cobra attack helicopters from the US, although I have yet to hear about actual procurement of either (either brand new or 2nd hand).
