The $194 million contract is for a second lot of MH-47G Block II aircraft, to be delivered starting in 2021.

 Block II Chinooks feature technological advancements to extend the fleet’s service life and enhance performance.

“The MH-47G is the world’s best, most reliable heavy-lift helicopter and will help Special Operations execute their difficult missions,” said Chuck Dabundo, vice president and MH-47 program manager. “Nearly a quarter of the Special Ops fleet is now on contract for Block II, and we look forward to delivering this capability to them on schedule.”

The US Army has a large number of MH-47G Chinook helicopters and Boeing is now on contract for a total of 15 MH-47G Block II Chinooks. The first MH-47G Block II aircraft is scheduled to begin final assembly this year.
