Obviously fake.

8 Hueys + 4 Cobras is an awfully low number. Any chance of further orders?
There's 17 Hinds alone currently, right?
Or are the H-1s to replace the Hind fleet only? Hip stays? What about the W-3?

Thanks for the info.
Just came across this official source, which confirms the 12 H-1 will replace the Mi-24/35.

Officials of CzAF have annouced that purchasing of 8+4 H1 is only first phase of chopper fleet modernisation. Czech Army will buy more H-1 helicopters later. In December Ministry of Defence signed contract for new two C-295W and will buy one Bombardier Global 5000 in 2020. It means the end of two Jak-40 and one Challanger service in Czech Air Force livery.

Those camo schemes look amazing!

Even I lost my old account, which I had for over 10 years. This move over to the new forum has been a disaster. It has pretty much killed off the Military forum. I keep posting to keep the interest going, but if it doesn't pick up then even I'll stop.
