Mesa, Arizona – Boeing and the U.S. government recently signed a five-year, $3.4 billion contract through which the Army and a customer outside the U.S. will acquire the latest Apache attack helicopter.

This is the first multi-year agreement for the Apache AH-64E variant. The Army will receive 244 remanufactured Apaches while 24 new ones will go to the international customer.

Boeing builds the Apache in Mesa, Arizona. Deliveries of the AH-64E model began in October 2011. Seven customers outside the U.S. have ordered this variant. Including this latest version, the U.S. and 15 other countries have relied on the Apache during the past three decades.
