The full $49.2 million will be obligated at the time of the award using the Army's fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance funds.

The Defense Department expects work to conclude by July 2024.

The AH-64Es, also known as Apaches, are helicopters that typically carry AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods. They have four blades and are rotary-winged.
