    No problem. The US is thinking about replacing Afghanistan’s venerable but aging Mi-17 fleet with UH-60 Black Hawks. They ‘created’ the need by not funding heavy maintenance and spares, so a lot of Afghanistan’s existing Mi-17s are inoperable. Somehow, replacing them with much more expensive UH-60s with their astronomical maintenance costs will ‘fix’ this problem. No regional repair facilities available and all spares will have to come from the US. Oh, and Afghanistan has no money to buy the Black Hawks, so I guess I’ll be paying for them. Your welcome, Afghanistan.
