ἄν is sometimes added to ὅπως with the subjunctive to denote that the purpose is dependent on certain circumstances.

ὅπως ἂν . . . οἱ στρατιῶται περὶ τοῦ στρατεύεσθαι βουλεύωνται, τούτου πειρἁ_σομαι ἐπεμέλεσθαι I will endeavour to make it my care that the soldiers deliberate about continuing the war X. C. 5.5.48, μηχανητέον ὅπως ἂν διαφύγῃ plans must be made for his escape P. G. 481a (the same passage has ὅπως with the subjunctive and the future). In Attic this use occurs in Aristophanes, Xenophon, and Plato.
