Boeing received a contract modification Friday to produce an additional 21 AH-64E Apaches for the U.S. Army and an international customer. This award, by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), is a modification to the multiyear contract awarded to Boeing in March 2023, bringing the new total of Apaches to produce under the contract to 205.
“These additional E-model Apaches further proves the need for this aircraft. The Apache is the most proven and advanced attack helicopter that provides unmatched capabilities for defense forces,” said Christina Upah, vice president of Attack Helicopter Programs and senior Boeing Mesa site executive. “We are proud to continue to provide our U.S. and international customers with the best attack helicopter in the world.”
Under this contract awarded in March 2023, the U.S. Army will receive an additional five remanufactured E-model Apaches, and 16 AH-64Es will be produced for an international operator as part of the DoD’s Foreign Military Sales program. Boeing Global Services will continue to deliver optimal readiness for the warfighter including training devices, spare provisions, support and test equipment kits, depot support, field engineering and technical manuals.
