Time rebuild yet another thread that was lost with the loss of the Timawa forum

From: http://www.janes.com/article/64104/kenya-and-uganda-to-receive-huey-ii-helos

The Huey II upgrade kit takes a standard UH-1 and equips it with a more powerful engine, new dynamic parts (such as rotors, transmissions, and gearboxes), new wiring, and an optional 'glass' cockpit. The surplus airframes have also been 'zero-timed'.

====

The argument in favor of the Surion CUHs actually apply to the Huey II as well.

The goal is to eventually replace the 50+ UH-1 Hueys that are still in the inventory, and back fill the balance to reach the 100-helicopter fleet that the PAF has been asking for for years.

Given that the PAF already has the expertise to perform Huey II conversions in-house . . . this would be an excellent SRDP opportunity.

However, it would be at the expense of the ability to transition to another type that may actually offer additional advantages (e.g., even longer airframe life, newer technology, etc.)
