The State Department has approved a possible $200 million deal with Poland for follow-on support to sustain its fleet of F-16 aircraft.
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified Congress on Wednesday of the foreign military sale (FMS) for aircraft maintenance and upgrades, as well as engine support.
“This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by helping to improve the security of a NATO ally. Poland continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in Central Europe,” the DSCA said in a statement.
Poland has also requested repair parts for its F-16s, test equipment, and logistical support services.
There is no prime contractor at the moment, but support deals will be awarded as parts are ordered.
Potential prime contractors include Harris Corporation [HRS], Boeing [BA], UTC Aerospace Systems [UTX], Exelis Electronic [XLS], Lockheed Martin [LMT], Raytheon [RTN], Northrop Grumman [NOC], Honeywell [HON], Booz Allen Hamilton [BAH] and BAE Systems.
