The U.S. Transportation Command has tapped Lockheed Martin “‹to deliver A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport aircraft to the U.S. Air Force as part of the company's joint venture with Airbus, Air Force Magazine reported Friday.

Michele Evans, executive vice president of Lockheed’s aeronautics business, made the announcement ahead of the Paris Air Show and said Boeing's wins on the T-X trainer, UH-1N helicopter and MQ-25 unmanned aircraft system contracts were “tough losses“ for the former.

She added that Lockeed is undergoing a digital transformation and implementing a model-based engineering approach as part of its updated strategy.

Lockheed is slated to potentially partner with the Japanese government for F-2 fighter jets, as well as the Korean Aerospace Industries for the T-50A trainer which the former intends to offer for T-X trainer competitions.
