A $151 million deal for 14 Boeing CH-47D Chinook cargo helicopters to South Korea has gotten the green light from the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA).
Released under the Foreign Military Sales program, the Dec. 3 DSCA notification said the aircraft will be sold and transferred to South Korea incrementally once the US Army begins taking receipt of new-production CH-47F model aircraft.
The 14 CH-47Ds are currently operated by US Forces Korea in South Korea.
The US Army will not replace the CH-47D aircraft being sold and transferred to South Korea. defensenews
