WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Boeing Co has won a contract valued at $1.16 billion for full-rate production of the AH-64E Apache helicopter, the U.S. Defense Department said on Tuesday.

It said the contract included 72 remanufactured helicopter systems, 10 new helicopters, six revamped crew trainers and other logistics support.

The contract runs through June 30, 2016, the Pentagon said in its daily digest of major weapons contracts.
