Boeing has secured a $265m order to deliver an additional nine MH-47G Block II Chinook helicopters to the US Army Special Operations Aviation Command (USASOAC).
With the latest order, Boeing is now on contract to supply 24 MH-47G Chinooks. As agreed, Boeing will assemble the helicopters at its Philadelphia plant in the US.
Boeing vice-president and H-47 programme manager Andy Builta said: “The G-Model is a critical asset for the army, our nation, and the defence industrial base.
“We’re honoured that the army’s special operators trust us to deliver it.”
