Boeing-US Army: contract for 268 AH-64E Apache helicopters
Mesa, Usa - First “E” model multi-year agreement
(WAPA) - Boeing and the US government recently signed a five-year, $3.4 billion contract through which the Army, and a customer outside the US, will acquire the latest Apache attack helicopter at a significant savings to taxpayers.
This is the first multi-year agreement for the Apache “E” variant. The Army will receive 244 remanufactured Apaches while 24 new ones will go to the international customer.
The industry builds the Apache in Mesa, Ariz. Deliveries of the “E” model began in October 2011. Seven customers outside the US have ordered this variant. Including this latest version, the US and 15 other countries have relied on the Apache during the past three decades.
