FAR 21.25(a)(2) states that to be eligible for a restricted category certificate, the helicopter must have been used by the U.S. military. Therefore, any foreign military used surplus helicopter or part is not eligible for FAA certification in a restricted category under FAR 21.25(a)(2). These helicopters were either delivered to foreign military organizations, or were involved in a lend/lease program in a foreign military organization. These helicopters and their components are ineligible for operation in the U.S. because they are known to have been used in foreign military operations.
