In 1998, The AH-64 Apache sustainment was the most expensive in the Army and the sixth most expensive in DoD. Apache represented 22% of the Army Working Capital Fund expenditures and accounted for $50-$60 million in Army Material Command (AMC) sustainment expenditures. Because of the overwhelming sustainment costs, Apache modernization programs remain unfunded. Between 42% and 49% of Apache sustainment costs funded AWCF and AMC overhead costs and Apache units would typically pay 45% to 50% above the actual repair parts acquisition costs.
