According to several Korean news sources and this English-language site, Korea may be looking to buy some American helicopter gunships.

In particular, it’s looking to get its hands on some Apache Longbows:

Further, the DSCA notified Congress September 21 of a possible FMS to the Government of Korea for 36 AH-64D APACHE Longbow Block III Attack Helicopters and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $3.6 billion.

The Koreans are looking to use the Apaches to fuck shit up “more effectively secure its borders and littoral waters, as well as conduct counter-terrorism/counter-piracy operations.”

According to Yonhap, the Koreans may not actually buy any of the gunships—the Korean military plans to choose either the Viper, the Apache or the Turkish T-129.
