India, US, Boeing sign Apache, Chinook deals
Rahul Bedi, New Delhi - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
28 September 2015
India signed a USD3 billion contract for 22 AH-64E Apache and 15 CH-47F Chinook helicopters with Boeing and the US government on 28 September, two days before the expiration of a deadline to sell both platforms at a price negotiated in 2013.

Ministry of Defence (MoD) officials in New Delhi said delivery of both platforms would begin in September 2018 and be completed by March 2020.

Boeing confirmed that the agreement included the option for India to acquire 11 additional Apaches and seven Chinooks.

The contract comprised a 'hybrid' deal for the Apaches, combining a Direct Commercial Sale (DCS) with Boeing for the platform and a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) agreement with the US government for weapons, sensors, radar, training, and varied components.
