The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) is in talks with the US Army in relation to standing up a new variant of the Chinook, a senior military officer revealed at DSEI 2017 in London.

The UK RAF currently operates the HC2/2A/3 versions of the Chinook. The MoD official confirmed that while the US does not currently export the model, the two countries are currently in discussion regarding the MH-47G.

The G model is currently operated by the US Army 160th SOAR special operations aviation regiment; the most recent of the 61 re-manufactured aircraft were delivered to the US Army last year.
