Description: The CH-47 Chinook is a twin-engine, tandem-rotor, heavy-lift transport helicopter in service with the US Army and other Armed Forces worldwide. It is enabled to transport ground forces, supplies, ammunition, and other battle-critical cargo. In addition, the CH-47 Chinook can be employed for medical evacuation, aircraft recovery, fire fighting, parachute drops, heavy construction, civil development, disaster relief and search and rescue (SAR).

The MH-47G will be a derivative of improved CH-47F helicopter. The MH-47G aircraft will fulfill the US Army special operations requirements in the 21st century. The US Army current plans call for procurement of 37 new-build MH-47Gs and remanufacture of 58 existing C/MH-47E/D helicopters to the G-model standard by 2011. Boeing delivered the first MH-47G Special Operations Chinook aircraft to the US Army on May 7, 2004. In September 2005, Boeing unveiled its proposal designated as the HH-47 CSAR-X for the US Air Force Combat Search and Rescue program. The HH-47 CSAR-X powered by T-55-GA-714A engines was based upon MH-47G airframe, countermeasures and survivability systems.

As of January 2005, the latest US Army's acquisition plan approved the increase of the Chinook fleet from 463 to 513 aircraft. The plan included upgrade of the entire fleet of 397 CH-47Ds to the F-model configuration and acquisition of at least 55 additional new-build CH-47Fs. The US Special Operations Command will increase their current fleet of 34 MH-47D/E special operations heavy assault Chinooks to 61 MH-47Gs, with options on further aircraft. On January 14, 2005, Boeing was awarded a $194 million contract as part of a $223 million fixed-price-incentive contract to remanufacture 12 CH-47 helicopters to the MH-47G configuration. Modification work is expected to conclude by July 30, 2006.
