Boeing has won a $30 million modification contract to supply components and parts in support of US Special Operations Command’s MH-47G Chinook rotary wing aircraft.
The helicopters are required to sustain US Special Operations Forces (SOF) heavy assault, rotary wing aircraft, to mitigate the impact of the MH-47G aircraft availability in light of increased SOF operational demands and to procure H-47 long-range, rotary wing aircraft under foreign military sales acquisition procedures for the United Kingdom (UK), the US Department of Defense said in a statement Thursday.
Yesterday, the company won a $194 million deal to renew-build six MH-47 Chinook helicopters and new-build another.
The Boeing MH-47G chopper is used in heavy-lift missions such as the transportation of troops, ammunition, vehicles, equipment, fuel and supplies, as well as civil and humanitarian relief missions. The helicopter can conduct long-range missions at low level in adverse weather conditions. The MH-47G configuration incorporates a number of production improvements to include the digital advanced flight control system, more robust, improved monolithic machined-frames, and improved air transportability.
