Comment(s):

In 2018 the Dutch government signed the letter of offer and acceptance. The RNLAF will be contracted through the FMS system. Boeing and the US Army are negotiating a multi year block buy contract for both new and retrofitted AH-64E's. The order for the (retrofitted) Netherlands AH-64's will be incorporated in an US Army contract awarded by the US DoD to Boeing Defence.
