Representative picture

The Pentagon has awarded over $55 million worth foreign military sales contract to Leidos for logistics support services for the Afghan Air Force and Special Mission Wing aircraft fleets, the Department of defense announced Thursday.

A $55,645,987 modification contract work will be performed in Kabul, Afghanistan, with an estimated completion date of May 31, 2020.

Fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance Army funds in the amount of $55,645,987 were obligated at the time of the award. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the contracting activity, the statement added.

The AAF's inventory is a mixture of Russian, American and other nation's helicopters and light aircraft. Many air systems purchased for the AAF since the U.S. invasion have been of little utility due to lack of trained personnel and maintenance.
