PAF starts training for 2 donated Cobra attack helicopters

Remember the announcement of president Rodrigo Roa Duterte regarding the donation of the Kingdom of Jordan of two AH-1S Cobra attack helicopters when he visited Israel and Jordan last year?

The latest new regarding that topic is that the Philippine Air Force (PAF) team has started training in Jordan for the donated attack helicopters.

“A team from the Philippine Air Force has started their training in Jordan recently in preparation for the upcoming 2 Bell AH-1S Tzefas Cobra attack helicopters donated by Jordan (which in turn are former Israeli units donated to Jordan in 2014),” MaxDefense Philippines said in its Facebook post.

Department of Budget and Management (DBM) released the Special Allotment Release Order (SARO) for the transfer of AH-1S Cobra Attack helicopters donated by the Kingdom of Jordan on June 3.
The SARO has an amount of PHP 158,204,428.00 “to cover the requirements for the transfer and acceptance of two (2) units AH-1S Cobra Attack Helicopters from the Kingdom of Jordan under the Revised AFP Modernization Program.”

There are also unconfirmed reports that the country is negotiating with Jordan if it can still donate two more units of the AH-1S Cobra Attack Helicopters to go along with the first two donated.
