U.K. to receive Apache helicopter hardware from Lockheed

May 3 (UPI) — The United Kingdom will receive AH-64 Apache hardware in deal between the U.S. Army and Lockheed Martin.

The contract, announced Wednesday by the Department of Defense, is valued at more than $14.1 million under the terms of a foreign military sales contract.

The contract from U.S. Army Contracting Command is a modification to a previous Pentagon award and enables Lockheed Martin to provide AH-64 Apache refurbishment items to the United Kingdom.

Work on the contract will occur in Orlando, Fla., and is expected to be complete in March 2021, the Defense Department said.

The total cumulative value to the contract will be obligated to Lockheed Martin at time of award.

The obligated funds will be allocated from fiscal 2018 foreign military sale financial account.
