Work begins on F-16s for Pakistan

Lockheed Martin has received a $144 million contract to begin production of 18 F-16C/Ds for Pakistan, as part of a $5.1 billion arms package to re-equip the country’s air force. Work will be completed by November 2010.

The F-16s will be Block 52 aircraft – 12 single-seat Cs and six two-seat Ds – powered by Pratt & Whitney F100-229 engines. Northrop Grumman has already received a $99.5 million contract to produce 54 APG-68(V)9 radars for the new F-16s, plus existing and secondhand aircraft Pakistan plans to upgrade. Turkey’s Tusas Aerospace Industries signed a memorandum of understanding with the Pakistani air force last month to modernise up to 32 F-16A/Bs.
