    Option of up to 14 Chinooks. |Drool|

    Some will be used by Special Operations Command.

    Turkey has no heavy lift helicopters right now.|Dead|

    The Turkish Military loves American helicopters. They had very good experience with Black Hawks and Navy has good experience with Sea Hawk.

    I think after the first chinooks enter inventory more will be purchased. I think navy will buy some for Anatolia LHD maybe.

    The camo reminds me a bit of the Aus Army chopper camo.

    The Chinook should come in handy for Turkey :)
