The US State Department has approved a possible Foreign Military Sale to Qatar of 24 AH-64E Apache Attack helicopters and related equipment for an estimated cost of $3.0 billion.  The Defence Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale today.

The Government of Qatar has requested to buy 24 AH-64E Apache Attack helicopters; 52 T700-GE-701D engines; 2,500 AGM-114R Hellfire missiles; also included are 28 M230 30mm automatic chain guns. The estimated cost is $3.0 billion.

The proposed sale of the AH-64E Apache helicopters will supplement the Qatar Emiri Air Force’s previous procurement of 24 AH-64Es, which are capable of meeting its requirements for close air support, armed reconnaissance, and anti-tank warfare missions.
