Raytheon Wins $4.4B for F-35 Engines

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) announced a modification contract valued nearly $4.4 billion to produce engines that power the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

This contract adds scope for the production and delivery of Lot 15 and 16 F-35 propulsion systems to include 152 F135-PW-100 propulsion systems (108 for the Air Force, 29 for the Navy, and 15 for the Marine Corps); and 26 F135-PW-600 propulsion systems for the Marine Corps, as well as long lead-time components, parts, and materials associated with F135-PW-100 and F135-PW-600 propulsion systems for non-U.S. DoD participants and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers, as per a DoD release issued today.

Additionally, this modification provides global spares requirements to include spare engines, power modules, and other hardware. This modification also provides a Block 4 Short Take-Off Vertical Landing developmental test engine for flight test efforts.

Work is expected to be completed in September 2024.
