The UH-60M request seems quite extensive:

Weird combo. AH-1Z and UH-1Y makes sense.

The Pentagon has bought a large share years ago, because the firm had problems and the biggest customers are the Pentagon and other US gov departments anyway.

 

 

I think the iridum phones are for deployments abroad to phone home to HQ.

Does anybody know why US senator Rand Paul wants to block sale of US helicopters to the Czech Republic?

If you google him, you'll see he has tried to block US military aid and/or weapons sales to quite a few countries including Israel, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.
