The U.S. Army awarded Boeing a contract to produce 12 new CH-47F Chinooks for the Egyptian Air Force.

With this $426 million foreign military sale, Egypt will replace its fleet of CH-47D aircraft with the modern F model, and benefit from its advanced multi-mission capabilities.

The CH-47F is an advanced multi-mission helicopter for the U.S. Army and international defense forces. It contains a fully integrated, digital cockpit management system, Common Avionics Architecture System cockpit and advanced cargo-handling capabilities.

On May 26, the U.S. State Department approved the sale of 23 “F” models and related equipment to Egypt for $2.6 billion.
