Not even a reverse engineered Chinese copy.
I still say it was a red herring to let Pakistan off the hook for allowing the raid to go ahead.

I never got why the rest of the aircraft should be so close to some pretty standard Blackhawk? If it is intended to be stealthy wouldn't the entire airframe need to be designed in some more radical way?

It's a good probability that they've been buried in the desert by now and replaced with something else.

I don't think so. I have a friend who saw two of them in a hangar in Afghanistan in the hours leading up the mission.
