AH-64 Apache


P.1 General Information

This is the final FORSCOM AH-64D Apache Longbow Materiel Fielding Plan (MFP). It was completed 30 November 1997 by the Logistics Management Division of the Apache Attack Helicopter (AAH) Project Managerís Office (PMO). The Air to Ground Missile System (AGMS) PMO incorporated the Longbow HELLFIRE Modular Missile System (LBHMMS) MFP; it was originally Appendix N to the First Draft. Information from the LBHMMS MFP is incorporated throughout the AH-64D MFP where appropriate. All information in this document is subject to change based on funding, schedule changes, world situations, and other external factors. Information is considered current as of the publishing date.

P.2 Regulatory Compliance

This MFP provides information pertinent to the fielding of the AH-64D Apache Longbow aircraft and weapon system, including the Fire Control Radar (FCR), and LBHMMS. It has been prepared to meet the requirements of Department of the Army (DA) Pam 700-142, Instructions for Materiel Release, Fielding and Transfer, 18 May 88; Army Regulation (AR) 700-142, Materiel Release, Fielding and Transfer, 1 May 95; and AR 700-127, Integrated Logistic Support,
17 Jul 90.

P.3 Point of Contact for MFP Issues

For matters pertaining to this MFP or the AH-64D or Longbow Fire Control Radar (FCR) fielding, mail comments to:

Project Manager, Apache Attack Helicopter

ATTN: SFAE-AV-AAH-L

Building 5681

Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898

Telephone numbers for the Apache Attack Helicopter Logistics Management Division: Commercial: (205) 313-4040, DSN: 897-4040. POC for fielding is Mr. George M. "Mike" Behnen.

For matters specifically regarding LBHMMS fielding, mail comments to:

Project Manager, Air-to-Ground Missile Systems

ATTN: SFAE-MSL-HD-S

Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898-5610

Telephone numbers for LBHMMS issues are: Commercial: (205) 876-3941, DSN 746-3941. POC for fielding is Mr. Stephen E. Hayes.

P.4 MFP Purpose

This plan provides guidance for Program Executive Officer (PEO) Aviation (AV), US Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM), and PEO Tactical Missiles in planning for logistics support of the AH-64D Apache Longbow and Longbow HELLFIRE Modular Missile System (LBHMMS) during fielding to US Army Forces Command (FORSCOM) units. This MFP does not cover FORSCOM units assigned to the Army Reserve or Army National Guard. Should significant additional information become available after publication of the Final MFP, a change will be published and distributed in the same manner as this MFP. Periodic updates are expected.
