    The first intention of RTN is to build her domistically. But Chinese offer even lower cost of building. We uses no Chinese equipment and material, even import steal from Japan.

    The only thing we use from China is their worker.

    Also, lastest procurement from China is C-802 (and,if possible, LY-60) which will be installed in Chao Praya-class frigate.

    Still bad. The terrorist introduce a new tactic like road side bomb. They bury the bomb beneath the road to bomb the soldier's car. After the blast, they will raid and shot everyone until no one alive and steal the gun.

    But the operation is limit only in Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, and southern part of Songkra.

    Default Procurement Update

    MH-60S Helicopter to Enter International Military Use with Sale to Royal Thai Navy


    Jun. 18, 2007
    -


    PARIS AIR SHOW - The Royal Thai Navy will become the first international customer to take advantage of the advanced technology of the MH-60S helicopter, after signing a Letter of Offer and Acceptance with the U.S. Government to purchase two Sikorsky MH-60S aircraft for an estimated program value of $58 million inclusive of spares, support and training. Sikorsky Aircraft is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

    The agreement, signed by the U.S. Navy and the Royal Thai Navy, specifies delivery of the aircraft in 2009.

    "The U.S. Navy has decided to operate only two helicopters - both from Sikorsky Aircraft - the MH-60R and the MH-60S," said Sikorsky President Jeffrey Pino. "International customers are beginning to recognize and embrace that message of standardized fleets. Sikorsky is pleased to see the Royal Thai Navy validate that message with this purchase agreement. The MH-60S will deliver new mission equipment and standard technology that will serve the Royal Thai Navy well."

    Sikorsky Aircraft has developed four generations of maritime helicopters that support the operations of navies across the globe. Naval Hawk helicopters and their derivatives serve the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard as well as navies around the world in an array of seaborne operations such as anti-marine warfare, missile targeting, anti-surface ship warfare, strike warfare, search-and-rescue, and medical evacuation.

    Since joining the fleet in 2002, the U.S. Navy's MH-60S helicopter has become the service's multi-purpose workhorse, accumulating more than 120,000 flight hours performing vertical replenishment, amphibious and carrier search-and-rescue, medevac, noncombatant evacuation and remote site logistics missions in theaters worldwide.

    The new generation Naval Hawk™ helicopter, the MH-60R, entered the U.S. Navy fleet in 2006.

    Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., based in Stratford, Conn., is a world leader in helicopter design, manufacturing, and service. The company's long commitment to safety and innovation is reflected in its mission statement: "We pioneer flight solutions that bring people home everywhere...every time™." United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Conn., provides a broad range of high-technology products and support services to the aerospace and building systems industries.

    Still not much info about APC program. Some rumor said RTA will goes for Ukrainian BTR series. But I never heard that Reva has been selected or even joint the program.

    But for all, as alway, no official news release from RTA until the buying is completed.

    Oh. It did posted on janes' website

    Thailand opts for Reva 4x4 to fulfil APC requirement
    Thailand has selected the Reva 4x4, which is manufactured by South African company Integrated Convoy Protection (ICP), to fulfil its requirement for up to 100...
    22-Jun-2007

    http://jdin.janes.com/public/jdin/major_contracts.shtml

    Are anyone has a full article about this?

    But as far as I know, RTA previously required something like 6x6 or 8x8 APC.....I don't know why they change the requirement, or they will use Reva in deep south while the requirement for 6x6 or 8x8 APC still exist. Or maybe RTA only selected for trial as you mention.
