In March 2019, the US State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Morocco of F-16C/D Block 72 aircraft and related equipment for an estimated cost of $3.787 billion. The Moroccan government has requested to purchase twenty-nine engines (Pratt & Whitney F100-229) (includes 4 spares), twenty-six APG-83 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars (includes 1 spare), twenty-six Modular Mission Computers (includes 1 spare), among others.

Work will be performed in East Hartford, Connecticut, and is expected to be completed June 30, 2025. This contract involves Foreign Military Sales (FMS) to Morocco and is the result of a sole-source acquisition. FMS funds in the full amount will be obligated at time of award.
