These 50 engines are only enough for 25 helicopters. There is no problem for first 59 T70s anyway, they will definitely be produced. The deal was for a total of 109 T70 helicopters. The remaining 50 require re-approval from the USA Congress. A potential problem could be this for the remaining 50 T70 helicopters.
