Super Pumas and Rooivalk.NH90 seems to be troubled at the maintenance / flight rate level. More Super Pumas (whatever its current name, Caracal, EC-something) might have been a better bargain.
Same engines and dynamic components such as main rotor, tail rotor, gearboxes...etc.
Maintenance, procurement and spares commonality.
The Rooivalk was excluded in many decisions due to political processes mainly, not due to ability.
As a result, it's an orphan, starved off.
It could and should have been different.
