    Are you really sure about this? Any other sources? I cannot imagine the US selling these helicopters to the Kurds for fear of pissing off Turkey and Iraq.

    The Iraqi Kurds wanted to prevent USA selling F-16 to Baghdad.
    USA rejected Iraqi Kurds' demands. So the Kurds asked Washington "If you won't cancel the F-16 deal, then at least sell us Helicopters."

    Nothing official and no signs (as of now), that USA will sell Iraqi Kurds any Helicopters.


    The Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) is preparing to showcase its Anka, the national unmanned air vehicle (UAV), and T-129, the national attack helicopter developed in cooperation with Italians, at a ceremony on June 28.
