Army, National Guard Fight Over Apache Helicopters

Feds trying to take the attack helicopters from control of the Governors

Apaches would pose a threat to the MRAPs that are being distributed tolocal police imo.


Quote:The Army National Guard is pushing back against a plan to send all of its 192 Apache attack helicopters to the active duty Army.

In exchange, the Guard and Reserve components would receive 111 UH-60 Blackhawk transport and utility helicopters from the Army in a broader aviation restructuring after more than a decade of combat and steep budget cuts.

The restructuring would also eliminate three of 13 combat aviation brigades from the Army, while the Guard would phase out its entire fleet of OH-58 Kiowa Warrior scout helicopters, which have been in use for nearly five decades.

Question, if the national guard gives up all of their attack helicopters how are they supposed to train with them in case the homeland is attacked? Making this public is also a strategic consideration seeing that we are telling other countries that we are allocating our equipment elsewhere.

And how can you wage a respectable ground war when all of your primary attack helicopters are on the far side of the world. I think if there's one thing this Ukraine situation has taught us is that our relations with other countries can change almost overnight.
