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.
