Thank you Sir - that certainly explains quite a bit - as does the line "We look forward to a long term partnership with both Sikorsky and the Swedish Armed Forces"So i guess we'll be seeing Swedish '60's for quite a while

Stefan,
Thank you for the reply - however it still does not answer my question.
Are the UH60M's a short term solution to the A-stan CSAR problem or will they be returned and used in Sweden?
Sorry if i am being repetative - i'm just trying to figure out this purchase.

So are these Blackhawks "purchased" to be used long term? Or are they stricktly for Afghan ops and the Swedes will get rid of them once they finish in A-Stan?
