Boeing has won a $ 246.48 million contract to manufacture six additional MH-47G Block II Chinooks for the US Army Special Operations Aviation Command (USASOAC).

The order also includes the provision of spares.

Delivery of Chinook under this contract is scheduled for 2023.

With this order, Boeing has signed a contract for the 30MH-47G Block II Chinook. The company has already delivered four jets.

Under the latest contract, these aircraft will be the first to be equipped with the new Active Parallel Actuator Subsystem (APAS).

Boeing has selected BAE Systems to develop APAS on the CH-47F and MH-47G Chinook aircraft.

APAS is a mission system that supports maneuverability, increases flight safety, and improves aircraft reliability.

Andy Builta, Boeing’s Vice President and H-47 Program Manager, said:

NS MH-47G CH-47 Chinook Heavy Lift Helicopter Special Operations Variant.

Featuring a reinforced construction and new lightweight fuel pods, it improves performance, efficiency and commonality.

Chinook is expected to strengthen the capabilities of the US military in carrying out challenging missions.

Last September, Boeing delivered the first MH-47G Block II Chinook Only a month after the company secured a $ 265 million order to deliver nine additional MH-47G Block II Chinook helicopters to USSOCOM.
