Afghanistan’s elite special operations unit to get CH-47 helicopters | Military Times

An unknown number of CH-47 Chinook helicopters will be sent to Afghanistan’s Special Mission Wing as detailed in a December 2019 report. The “Enhancing Security and Stability in Afghanistan” report gave no other information on the helicopters being sent to replace the Russian Mi-17s currently in use. “The Defense Department does not comment on or confirm potential or pending arms sales or transfers before the U.S. Congress has been formally notified,” commented Lt. Col. Thomas Campbell. The Special Mission Wing supports Afghan security forces with raids, evacuations, and reconnaissance.
