Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman awarded contract for Greek F-16 fleet sustainment support
 
The US State Department has approved a possible Foreign Military Sale to Greece for F-16 sustainment and associated equipment, parts and logistical support for an estimated cost of $188 million. The principal contractors will be Lockheed Martin in Ft Worth, Texas; and Northrop Grumman in Baltimore, Maryland.
     
     
The Government of Greece has requested the continuation of sustainment support for the Hellenic Air Force’s F-16 aircraft, which includes the Electronic Combat International Security Assistance Program; International Engine Management Program; F-16 Technical Coordination Program; and Aircraft Structural Integrity Program; aircraft hardware and software support; repair and return; spare and repair parts; publications and technical documentation; support equipment; minor modifications; U.S. government and contractor technical and engineering support services; and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $188 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) ally.

The Government of Greece needs this aircraft support to ensure its F-16 fleet is properly sustained and modernized to maintain interoperability with the United States and other NATO countries. The continued support and maintenance of Greece’s F-16 fleet will ensure the effectiveness of its capabilities and ability to support future contributions to NATO operations.
