Sole-source could make sense in this case, if they can buy, off-the-shelf, something 98% common with another helicopter in the DoD inventory. Navy/Marine UH-1Y or Army UH-60M or perhaps UH-72A. It would be a tragedy for the department to have to support *another* helicopter type when something in the inventory is more than suited to the job. I can think of no reason why one of the three types mentioned above would not be suitable with little modification.
