HH-47 MOST CAPABLE WITH QUICKEST DELIVERY AND LOWEST RISK .
That was supposedly true on the original flawed contract award. With the re-bid the US101 will win. We were 3 billion cheaper than Boeing for the 1st time around. I wonder if it will be 6 billion this time. That would be tough to justify if Boeing wins again. This contract is all about who gives the most bang for the money.....right? Or do politics play any part?...Hmmmm
Boeing's program with the government is to maximize the profits. Stiff them for all they can stand plus some. The people who need to be bought to make it happen can be bought for pennies on the dollar.
Your absolutely right. In head to heada competition the hh-47 beat all other competitors. You think the customer doesn't know how the aircraft performed? The HH-47 is head and shoulders above the rest of the field. If politics plays any part in this the HH-47 may not get the nod, and politics will be the only reason. Live with it.
