Abstract:

In 1998, The AH-64 Apache sustainment was the most expensive in the Army and the sixth most expensive in DoD. Apache represented 22 of the Army Working Capital Fund expenditures and accounted for 50-60 million in Army Material Command AMC sustainment expenditures. Because of the overwhelming sustainment costs, Apache modernization programs remain unfunded. Between 42 and 49 of Apache sustainment costs funded AWCF and AMC overhead costs and Apache units would typically pay 45 to 50 above the actual repair parts acquisition costs.
