United States Navy has awarded a $170 million contract for the manufacture and delivery of nine AH-1Z aircraft and nine auxiliary fuel kits for Pakistan, the US Department of Defence said in a statement on Monday.

Bell Helicopter has been awarded the contract for the combat helicopters which will be manufactured and delivered to Pakistan under the Foreign Military Sales Programme, the statement said.

The Bell AH-1Z Viper is a twin-engine combat chopper based on the previous SuperCobra model developed for the US Marine Corps. It has a top speed of 420 kilometres per hour and a range of 610 kilometres.

The contract is “expected to be completed in September 2018″.

“Foreign military sales funds in the amount of $170,173,188 will be obligated at time of award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year,” the Defence Department statement said. The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity for Pakistan, it added.

US agrees to sell AH-1Z attack helicopters to Pakistan

In April 2015, the US Department of State approved the possible sale to Pakistan for 15 AH-1Z Vipers with Hellfire missiles and support worth up to $952 million. The contract covered the manufacture and delivery of 15 Lot 12 UH-1Y Venom utility helicopters, 19 Lot 12 AH-1Zs, one Lot 13 UH-1Y, and 21 auxiliary fuel kits for the government of Pakistan.

In February this year, the US government said it had approved the sale to Pakistan of up to eight F-16 fighter jets built by Lockheed Martin Corp, radar and other equipment in a deal valued at $699 million. The Pentagon’s Defense Security Cooperation Agency, which oversees foreign arms sales, said it had notified lawmakers about the possible deal.

The US approves sale of F-16s to Pakistan

The agency said the F-16s would allow Pakistan’s Air Force to operate in all-weather environments and at night while improving its self-defense capability and bolstering its ability to conduct counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism operations.

@Zarvan @DEJAVU Whatever happened to super-rich Pakistani plans to buy WZ-10 from China, Mi-28 from Russia and T-129 from Turkey?? You can claim that you can pay for anything and everything...say whatever you want but the fact remains your military only survives thanks to the US taxpayer and Chinese banks.

Now US will have to pay for your AH-1Zs just like it paid for your F-16s, and earlier AH-1S/F. You will only ever get what the US or China decide that you should get. It also signifies an important aspect : Beggars can't be choosers.

India is a net donator of aid these days, get your facts right. Pakistan is easily the biggest recipient of aid in S.Asia both in outright terms and on a per capita basis. Just look at Pak's foreign policy, all of its "best friends" are effectviely buying it (China, US, Saudi Arabia and Britain).

It doesn't change the fact that while India buys AH-64E Apaches with our own money and is building the HAL LCH indigenously...Pakistan is having to import AH-1Zs, and you can't even afford to actually buy them....the US Navy is paying for it! You ought to be shameful.

But then again, you have no such thing as shame.

Are you a born idiot or did you become one due to the ghetto you live in? Do you even know that this is a FREE gift to Pakistan as part of the $800 million CSF being given to Pakistan?

We pay for stuff we buy unlike you turds who always look for free handouts from the Yanks or deep discounts from your deeper than ocean friends, China who who are giving you 50 JF Thunders at a huge discount after shamelessly begging them to do so! Needless to say, these 'Thunders' are a joke! Jo garaj they hain woh baras they nahin! Lol!

Beggars will always remain beggars! You fellows can never ever change. One can keep scrubbing a donkey till the cows come home but can never transform it into a horse! :tongue:

As the saying goes, you can't look a gift horse in the mouth! Beggars can't be choosers!

Except for some tinkering so that it could be sold to poor countries, this junk was produced by Bell in the early 70s!! Almost half a century ago! And the Pakis are jumping for joy!!

Why not? It's free after all!
The real FREEdom fighters are the Pakistanis!! :laugh:

CFS is no aid but you don't have the required IQ to understand geopolitics.

Paki, you guys have been scrounging off US largesse since the 50s! Once a beggar, always a beggar!

Geopolitics, my ass!

You guys can't even produce a fookin' safety pin which are still being imported from China! So what do or can you produce? Nix! Zilch!

Oh wait......You Pakis are the world's biggest manufacturers of terrorists!

The issue is not Pakistanis. I mean it's their job to grab on to everything they can get which frankly is becoming tougher by the day, and a few helis will hardly change the conventional balance, the point is something larger US at one side is pushing the U.S.-India Defence Technology and Partnership Act in the congress, makes a India Rapid Reaction Cell in pentagon but is also continue to supply Pakistan. Here is what I think Pakistan has previously purchased US equipment while Indo-US relations improved without a hitch. With this talk of CISMOA and LSA going on, India wants to push US further to either want something or to give a message, I mean everyone knew Pakistan will get those F-16s, the point is something different.

And you have been doing the same with the Russians and now the Israelis and the Americans. Without cheap military barters with the Soviets, you'd have been wiped out fo the map by China already.
And now you are begging the American and the Israelis for technology because your industry sucks. You beg them to stop sale of every single bullet to Pakistan because your mighty military sucks. You are the most insecure wanna be soops powwa on the face of earth.

The best you produce is rapists!

Checked out. :acce:pted
And found that India is a net donor of aid.
At par with China and Brazil.
USA and UK fund some Indian NGOs(non government organizations) like GPI to revolt against India itself.

So, India is in a completely different league.
Yet you have no hesitation in calling us gutter.
No doubt why you guys are begging. :laugh:

Just go through all threads out of this section.
You will come to know that Indians talk substandard only about subhumans and not others. :p

Learn difference between buying and begging. Good for you. :taunt:
Your friend China does the same as that of India. Just one step added, China steals and copies other's tech.
Your chinki masters and technological thieves.
:haha:

25%
If we go out of your fanboy stuff, China at current can destroy 25% of India.
Here's case of Soviet weaponry,
China uses more Soviet weapons than India.
China and India are two very large countries to be destroyed.

Inverse goes for pakistan.
And now you are begging the American and the Israelis for technology
We are paying them. Your daddy China got Russian tech in same way.
because your industry sucks.
This sucking industry is ranked third worldwide and spread around 150+ countries. :lol:
Light years ahead to the limit which half minded pakis could imagine in their dreams.
You beg them to stop sale of every single bullet to Pakistan
Beg? :biggrin2: We are lobbyists. Hope you understand what I'm trying to tell. :grin:
because your mighty military sucks.
No matter this mighty military can reach at many parts of world, can reach anywhere in IOR and wiping our your fake nation from the map in few minutes in a full escalation nuclear and conventional war.
(India has 110 nukes but material in reserve for 2000 nukes you know. :D)
You are the most insecure wanna be soops powwa on the face of earth.
One of world's fastest growing economy, military, space power, manufacturing hub, technological power, industrial giant.
Will be largest economy in 50 years with probably highest defense budget.

halved weapon import and increased export by 6 times.
Being developed country 3 decades before pakis. :heh:
(pakistan will have less than 20% of our GDP per capita).
Yes, now tell us how would you stop us.
Ghazwa e Hind ke chakkar main tumhara hi ghazwa na karde koi. :rofl:
The best you produce is rapists!
Rapes per 100000 women
India: 18
Pak: 63

I respect women so don't speak much you must check facts before ranting anything. :tsk:
India is much better than you.

Two more, they have problem with our Surya ICBM and K missile family, they are trying to block our industrial exports and space launch industry.

As India has already issues with China and cold with Russia, I don't think India must become directly against US.
It may be in 2025-30 when our power level could match Russia and China, USA.
We must start issue with taking something like Diego Gracia for taking panga.

I know the reason. Gender Ratio of almost all countries are same and number of Boys/Girls is almost same.
But in pakiland, one man marries for khatoons.
Result: rest of 3 pakistanis have noting except animals raping, corpse raping and real raping obviously.
