Boeing receives a contract for Apache AH-64E helicopters
- August 21, 2019
Boeing has received a $154,8 million modification contract to procure new-build Apache AH-64E attack helicopters.
According to the statement of U.S. Department of Defense, work is expected to be completed by December 31, 2022.
Boeing’s AH-64 Apache is the world’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopter. It is used by the U.S. Army and increasing number of international defense forces. Notably, AH-64E is the latest version of the AH-64 gunship, equipped with new sensors, avionics and improved night operation capabilities. It also has infra-red suppressing exhaust system as well as chaff and flare dispensers, which together lowers the chances of being hit by enemy air defense missiles.
Boeing will carry out the task in Mesa, AZ.
