Hot off the press:
SEOUL—South Korea said on Wednesday it will spend $1.6 billion to buy attack helicopters from Boeing Co. BA to better cope with North Korean military threats.
A fleet of 36 AH-64E Apache Guardian choppers will be deployed in South Korea from 2016 to 2018, said a senior official at the Defense Acquisition Program Administration in Seoul.
A worthy replacement for their older AH-1 Cobra's. The AH-64 beat out the AH-1Z and the AgustaWestland T-129 for this competition.
