Army Aviation: The RAH-66 Comanche Helicopter Issue

Date: October 17, 2000
Creator: Bolkcom, Christopher
Description: Although it has been a high priority Army program, a number of factors have complicated the RAH-66 Comanche program. Since its inception, the program has been restructured several times–postponing the initial operational capability (IOC) and increasing overall program costs. Presently, there is debate within the Army regarding whether the program should be reduced significantly to make funds available to pursue other modernization priorities.
