New customer from ‘Pacific region’ expected to be new Apache operator - Boeing

AH-64 Apache attack helicopter is one bad ass piece of war material that would really be an asset in any country.

Its parent company Boeing just announced that they are looking for two additional operators of AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.

It announced that that one of the two potential operator or customer is in the “Pacific Region.” This was according to the report by Jane’s quoting Terry Jamison, Director, Vertical Lift International Sales of Boeing.

“We expect the current 16 global operators of the Apache to go up to 18 in the next 12 months as we look to add two new users to the community that we like to call Team Apache. These two countries are totally new to the Apache – they are not existing customers looking to upgrade to the AH-64E,” Jamison said as quoted by Jane’s in an interview May 5.

However, Jamison clarified that the potential operator from the Paific region is not the Philippines.

Jane’s said country’s like Australia and Bangladesh are known to be considering Apache.

Philippines case

Recently it was reported that the Philippines was given the green signal by the United States State Department to purchase either the AH-1Z Viper or AH-64E Apache for Philippine Air Force (PAF)’s attack helicopter acquisition project.

Department of National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana already said the PAF already chose the Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) T129 ATAK attack helicopter for the said acquisition project.

Lorenzana said the Notice of Award was already released, but the actual contract is yet to be signed.
