I didn't realize the actual number was 17. Is this new?
|Quoting Arrow (Reply 8):|
When PWC's engine bid got stiffed for political reasons, that virtually guaranteed that Canada would not be a customer.
|Quoting GDB (Reply 9):|
What about delivery timescales too?
Some of those old RCAF C-130's were just that, old and showing it.

Deliveries within 18 months, I'm fairly confident. This contract everyone knew was coming, there was some haggling about specialised kit and the usual American concerns about access to the a/c by non-Canadian born CF personnel (I wonder if that would include American-born CF personnel ?) But I'd bet that some of the parts were being manufactured before the contract was actually signed.
