PAF F-16A(click to view full) Lockheed Martin Corp. in Fort Worth, TX received a $144 million firm-fixed-price and time and materials contract for 12 operational single place F-16C Block 52 aircraft and 6 operational two place F-16D Block 52+ aircraft. Aircraft purchases will be accomplished under the firm-fixed price portion of the contract, and $78.4 million has been obligated at this time. Work will be complete by November 2010. The Headquarters Aeronautical Systems Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH issued the contract (FA8615-07-C-6031). Those figures seem a touch under-valued – DID will pursue the matter with Lockheed and see if they can shine any light on the discrepancy. Note that this order is part of a larger $5.1 billion improvement and expansion of Pakistan’s F-16 force, which DID has covered in depth.
