After scrapping the deal with Russia, US offers the mighty Chinook to PH


The United States of America is talking to Philippine high ranking officials about the possibility of the country to acquire much needed helicopters for the Philippine Air Force (PAF).


The scenario came up after the Philippines scrapped the helicopter deal with Russia for fear of US led sanctions.


Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel “Babe” Romualdez said the Philippines is considering buying Chinook helicopters from the US to replace the country’s current heavy-lift helicopters.

Said helicopters will also be used for disaster preparedness, Romualdez added.

“As a matter of fact during a meeting we had with then Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and [US Defense] Secretary [Lloyd] Austin in at the Pentagon, we were already exploring the ideas of replacing these heavy-lift helicopters our Armed Forces needs,” he said in a forum hosted by the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP).

Romualdez said the United States offered the Philippines “to try to come out with a similar amount that we’re looking to spend for the Russian helicopters.”

“In other words at a special price,” he said. “Everything is all on the table and we will see how that goes.”

“We will definitely be on top of that as soon as we see the offers that are being made,” added Romualdez, who is hopeful the deal would be closed “as soon as possible.”
