The U.S. Army and Boeing signed a
$192.5 million contract for 13 new AH-64D Apache Longbow multi-role
combat helicopters for the U. S. Army on Friday, September 23.
The new Apache Longbow aircraft, to be built in the current
Block II configuration, are in addition to AH-64A Apaches being
remanufactured under a multi-year contract with the Army.
Production will begin in early 2006 and will be performed at the
Boeing facility in Mesa, Ariz., where Apaches have been
manufactured since the program started.
"Execution of this contract bridges the way to an additional 96
remanufactured AH-64Ds for the U.S. Army and to Block III Apache
Longbow helicopter production," said David Almond, Boeing Apache
Block II program manager.
