DSCA Greece CH-47D Chinook Helicopters


US State Department approved a possible Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to Greece for 10 CH-47D Chinook helicopters coming from US Army stock and logistical support for an estimated cost of $150 million


DSCA Greece CH-47D Chinook Helicopters


DSCA, December 11, 2014 - WASHINGTON - The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Greece for CH-47D Chinook helicopters and associated equipment, parts and logistical support for an estimated cost of $150 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale today.

The Government of Greece has requested a possible sale of 10 CH-47D Model Chinook Helicopters to include:

  • 23 T55-GA-714A Engines (20 installed and, 3 spares),
  • 12 AN/AAR-57 Common Missile Warning System (10 installed and 2 spares),
  • 12 AN/ARC-220 High Frequency (HF) Radios,
  • 12 AN/ARC-186 Very High Frequency (VHF) AM/FM Radios,
  • 12 AN/ARC-164 Ultra High Frequency (UHF)-AM,
  • 12 AN/ARN 123 VOR ILS Marker Beacons,
  • 12 AN/ARN-89 or AN/ARN-149 Direction Finder Sets,
  • 12 AN/ASN-128 Doppler/Global Positioning System Navigation Sets,
  • 12 AN/ARC-201D or AN/ARC-201E VHF FM Homing Radios,
  • 12 AN/APX-118 Transponders,
  • 3 AN/APX-118A Transponders,
  • 12 AN/APR-39A(V)1 Radar Signal Detecting Sets,
  • mission equipment, communication and navigation equipment, Maintenance Work Orders/Engineering Change Proposals (MWO/ECPs), aircraft hardware and software support, repair and return, spare and repair parts, publications and technical documentation, support equipment, minor modifications, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. government and contractor technical and engineering support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support.

    The estimated cost is $150 million.

    This proposed sale of these helicopters and support will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a NATO ally.

    This sale will contribute to both the United States’ and Greece’s defense and security goal of greater stability in the Balkans and the Levant regions by enhancing a critical helicopter lift capability. Additionally, this sale will facilitate greater interoperability of Greek systems both bilaterally and within NATO. Greece, which already operates CH-47s, will have no difficulty absorbing these helicopters into its armed forces.

    The proposed sale of these helicopters and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

    There is no principal contractor as the systems will be coming from U.S. Army stock. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale. Implementation of this proposed sale will require the assignment of U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Greece at some point in future. There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.

    This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
