Have anyone noticed that these helicopters are claiming more american lives than anything else in this war. American products what can be said.

Actually this is the result of not spending money on upgrading transport helicopters for like 30-40 years. The ****hook I mean Chinook (double rotor school bus) came out in Nam and is still in use. I rode in one once and it was pretty rickety and really slow so its easy to shoot down. The blackhawk has been around a while and the Huey (NAM) also. Did you know that the B-52 was introduced around the time of the late korean war (1955) or so. It was used extensively in Afghanistan. This is all the result of years of military downsizing and not spending money upgrading the bread and butter of the armed forces. It is too bad that we all of a sudden need this and all we have are these old worn out vehicles which are killing soldiers. Infantry 11B HOOAAHH!!
