The South Korean Army operates about 30 CH-47Ds as utility transports, while the Air Force runs six HH-47Ds mainly for search and rescue. The average age of the CH-47Ds is 37 years, and that of the HH-47Ds is nearly 20 years. A Chinook modernization project in South Korea is aimed at modernizing a total of 27 Chinook helicopters by overhauling their design, engines, avionics, cockpits and others. Besides the upgrade effort, the South Korean Army seeks to buy about 10 to 12 CH-47F models from Boeing.

Boeing CH-47D 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.
