What helicopter are we giving to India?

This caught my eye:
US offers . . . choppers to India

New Delhi, June 8, IRNA -- The US has offered to lease out 12 of its ... twin-engine helicopters to India which is looking to strengthen its coastal security following the Mumbai terror attacks.

"As the acquisition process will take time, we (India) want to have 12 twin-engine helicopters on lease . . . The US has offered to lease out its . . . helicopters [which are used by the United States' smallest military branch] to us," a senior Defense Ministry official said in New Delhi on Monday, Indian official media reported.
Do we have frames just sitting in the desert along side some HU-25's just waiting to be brought back into service? Are they 60's or 65's or something else?
