Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. filed a lawsuit against the government seeking to recover ¥35 billion in expenses related to the manufacture of the U.S.-designed Apache attack helicopter.

Fuji Heavy wants compensation from the Defense Ministry for license fees it paid to Boeing Co. for AH-64D helicopters, company spokesman Fusao Watanabe said Friday. The ministry, which agreed to buy 62 helicopters, only placed orders for 10, according to Watanabe.

An official at the Defense Ministry, who declined to be identified, said she couldn’t comment as she hadn’t been briefed on the matter.
