The CH-47SD or "Super D" Chinook tandem-rotor helicopter is the new standard CH-47 model. Although aimed primarily at the international market, the rotorcraft also will be available to the U.S. armed forces. The new Boeing "Super D" Chinook completed its first test Flight on August 26, 1999. The Boeing Company began production of the CH-47SD in March 1998. On 05 January 2000 Boeing announced that it had signed a contract calling for the delivery of nine CH-47SD (Super D) Chinook helicopters to Taiwan under a Foreign Military Sale agreement with the U.S. government. The procurement, valued in excess of $300 million, includes logistical support. Deliveries began in 2001.

Boeing CH-47SD Chinook

Designed as a turbine-powered replacement for the CH-37 Mojave, the CH-47 was first flown on September 21st, 1961. This iconic helicopter has had a long service history, seeing action in many different wars, from Vietnam to Afghanistan. The Chinook is the U.S. Army's heaviest-lifting helicopter, primarily serving as a troop transporter, with secondary roles including artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. It has a crew of three and can move 55 combat-ready troops. Its wide-loading ramp can be opened in-flight for paratroopers, and three cargo hooks can extend through a floor hatch, which allows the Chinook to be used as a flying crane.
