Boeing has won a contract valued over $560 million to remanufacture 47 existing AH-64D Apache helicopters of three unnamed allied countries.
“Boeing and the US Army have finalized orders from three nations to provide their armed forces with the new, more capable AH-64E Apache model. The contracts are for the remanufacture of 47 existing AH-64D Apaches. The total combined value of the orders is more than $560 million,” the company announced Thursday.
Sixteen countries currently field the Apache. AH-64 Apaches have flown 4.6 million flight hours, including more than one million flight hours in combat, the company claims.
The remanufactured aircraft will be delivered in the early 2020s.
