The CMWS and Hellfire missiles will be installed on the Netherlands’ AH-64D Apache helicopters. 

The potential sale is expected to strengthen the country’s homeland defence, allowing it to deter regional threats and provide direct support to coalition operations. 

BAE Systems will be the principal contractor for the sale of CMWS and Lockheed Martin for Hellfire missiles.
