Marine Corps Helicopter Program in Trouble

The Marines had engaged Bell Helicopter to update its UH-1 utility helicopter and derivative AH-1 attack helicopter. Guess what? The project is over budget, behind schedule and has technical difficulties (like that every happens in Defense procurement). But, something remarkable has happened. The Department of Defense is seriously considering cancelling the program entirely. A final decision will be made in the near future.

Hat Tip to Defense Tech.
