Must Read

A $212 million modification has been made to the contract between Boeing and USSOCOM to include the procurement of six more renewed, or rebuilt, MH-47G Chinook Block 11 helicopters and eight spare shipsets.

An expected completion date was not given although the existing remanufacturing contract signed in October slated five helicopters to be completed by September 2025.

As the renew-build program continues, USSOCOM plans on acquiring one additional MH-47G which would bring the total inventory of that aircraft to 68.

The MH-47G is the SOF edition of the CH-47 Chinook multirole heavy-lift helicopter.
