Israeli Ground Force Commanders will recommend the CH-47 OVER the CH-53K to the IAF!

via YNET news.
Ahead of next decade’s purchase of aircraft, the Ground Forces Command plans on recommending to the IAF the American Boeing CH-47 “Chinook” tandem-rotor helicopter, instead of the six-bladed Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopter.
Story here.

This is stunning news.

I thought this was a done deal but obviously the IDF Ground Forces see something in the CH-53K that they don't like.

I really can't think of a thing except for the price.

Just plain wow.
