Letters to the editor on Russian helicopters, Kobach, ACA

Thank you for the article on the Pentagon’s decision to buy medium-lift helicopters for Afghan defense forces from Russia instead of using a U.S. manufacturer (Dec. 8 Eagle). The article cited all the many reasons why the Boeing CH-47 Chinook would be the far better choice for the Afghans than the Mi-17 or NATO-named Hip.
