Boeing announced on 30 June that it has delivered its 2,500th AH-64 Apache helicopter (an AH-64E Apache Guardian) to the US Army.

First produced in the AH-64A variant in 1983, Apaches are now in service with the US armed forces and the militaries of 15 export customers.

In all, Boeing delivered 937 A-model Apaches until 1997, more than 1,000 AH-64Ds from 1997 to 2013, and more than 500 E-models since 2011.

‘The Apache has built an impressive legacy of success, and is well-positioned to bring relevant technologies and capabilities that defence forces require today and in the future,’ said Kathleen Jolivette, vice-president of attack helicopter programmes at Boeing.
