Boeing to rebuild six more Chinooks for USSOCOM
Boeing is to provide six more remanufactured MH-47G Chinook helicopters to US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) under a $194.63 million contract modification.
The DoD did not disclose when it expects work to be completed on this contract, which was awarded on 2 March.
The previous MH-47G rebuild contract was awarded in November 2021, also for six helicopters.
While the renew-build programme continues, the FY2022 budget request for USSOCOM envisages the procurement of an extra MH-47G for $135.48 million, bringing the total aircraft inventory to 68.
In service with US Army Special Operations Aviation Command, the MH-47G is an SOF variant of the CH-47 Chinook multirole heavy-lift helicopter.
