38 re manufactured Apaches for AAC

The Boeing Co., Mesa, Arizona, was awarded a $488,076,762 modification (P00007) to foreign military sales (United Kingdom) contract W58RGZ-16-C-0023 for the remanufacture of 38 AH-64 Apache aircraft, and to procure three Longbow crew trainers and associated spares. Work will be performed in Mesa, Arizona, with an estimated completion date of May 31, 2024. Fiscal 2010 other funds in the amount of $488,076,762 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity.
So 38 and not 50 Apache AH.2's (!?) replacing the once 67 AH.1's!
I guess the 3 crew trainers are groundtrainers

Could this being the first of two batches to spread the cost? Or spread the risk if we can't afford 50 anymore :'( !

It had previously been reported as "UP TO 50", so that fits.
