Sweden to buy 15 Black Hawks

Today it's become official that Sweden's defence forces will get 15 Black Hawk helicopters. Pilot training will start this summer, first delivery in less than a year and all of them will be fully operational by 2017. Which can be compared with the NH90 which was ordered a decade ago and won't be operational until 2020 (partly because the Swedish variant has a taller interal space) -- which is the reason we need something else sooner.
