Seems like it, but the Apache's country of origin is a bit closer to home (keep in mind all of the politics involved)

I'm sorry - but is there a point to this?  The RCAF does not currently utilize attack helicopters, nor is there any future requirement for such a role.

Mods - perhaps this should be moved to foreign militaries or the science fiction section.

Foreign militaries would be a better place, and there have been mod threads criticizing "lets buy these aircraft" posts. I see the logic behind that (not plugging up the forums and such) but I think if it was all nice and neat in its own section it would be acceptable.

I might buy this if there was an actual discussion about it.

IMO, it belongs in Radio Chatter.  Google the guy's name, apparently he's some helicopter fanboy.   ::)

Indirect (fan boy) spamming isn't any more acceptable than self-serving spam.

Locked (and may be deleted as chaff...) unless someone can demonstrate how this would be salvaged into a valid discussion thread.
