BAE Aiming for F-16 Support Growth Through New Equipment Sales; Carl Huncharek Comments

BAE Systems has won two contracts worth $63 million combined to provide support equipment, test systems and spares for Lockheed Martin-made F-16 fighter jets.

BAE said it is aiming for the new contracts, which cover sales with Indonesia and Iraq, to help grow its global portfolio of support services and equipment for the F-16.

“We are extremely pleased that Indonesia has called upon BAE Systems to again deliver the systems and services they require to affordably achieve their mission readiness,” said Carl Huncharek, a BAE program director. “For Iraq, this is a unique opportunity to assist a new user of the F-16 and help train those who will support the aircraft for years to come.”

Production will occur in Fort Worth, Texas and delivery is scheduled to occur by early 2014.

BAE holds a $1.1 billion contract to provide new mission computers and operating systems for South Korea’s F-16 variants.

The company also supports upgraded F-16s for the U.S. Air National Guard and the Turkish air force’s upgraded F-16s.

BAE says it has delivered more than 25,000 support equipment and test systems to more than 24 countries worldwide.
