South Korea could obtain 14 used Boeing CH-47D Chinook helicopters from US army forces stationed in the country.
The deal would be conducted under the US Foreign Military Sales (FMS) mechanism.
If the sale is approved, the aircraft would be transferred to South Korean forces incrementally as US army units take delivery of new-build CH-47Fs.
The DSCA has not given a timeframe for the proposed deal. flightglobal
