Chinooks, Super Hornets Lead Boeing 4Q Defense Deliveries

BoeingLogoBoeing has announced its numbers of deliveries from its defense operations during the fourth quarter of 2012.

Nearly two-thirds of those deliveries comprised of the Chinook helicopter and the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter, including its EA-16 Growler configuration.

The company reported 11 deliveries of new Chinook builds and 12 for the Super Hornet and Growler.

For the full year, Boeing said it delivered 51 new Chinook builds, along with 48 Super Hornets and Growlers.

Super Hornet and Growler aircraft were the subjects of foreign military sales activity last year, as Australia is purchasing $1.7 billion in Growler electronic warfare systems.

Australia already allocated funding to convert its Super Hornets into the Growler configuration.
