Hellenic Army to Get Apache Longbows

Greece Signs Agreement to Upgrade Apache Fleet

The Greek Ministry of Defense has signed a commercial contract with Boeing for the purchase of 12 AH-64D Apache Longbow combat helicopters, with an option to purchase an additional four Apache Longbows.

The agreement includes the acquisition of the Longbow fire control radar, the new Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight (MTADS), support equipment, training services, maintenance support and offsets according to the Hellenic requirements.

The Hellenic Army will add the next-generation Apache Longbows to its current fleet of 20 AH-64A Apaches, which entered service in 1995. Greece is the eighth international defense force to select the combat-proven AH-64D and the second customer to increase their current fleet size by adding the AH-64D. The contract with Greece for the AH-64D Apache Longbow program will be managed by Boeing, as prime contractor, through commercial practices. Some parts of the contract will be completed through government-to-government contract agreements.

The AH-64D Apache features fully integrated avionics and weapons plus a state-of-the-art modem that transmits real-time, secure, digitized battlefield information to air and ground forces. The Apache Longbow is the world's only fourth-generation attack helicopter and the only combat helicopter in service with the ability to rapidly detect, classify, prioritize and engage stationary or moving enemy targets at standoff ranges in nearly all weather environments.
