Comment(s):

CH-47D:

Requested the potential sale through FMS for five CH-47Ds which has been approved by the State Department (DSCA) on April 27th by notifying US Congress.

OH-58D:

The Kiowa Warriors will be delivered in the autumn of 2018. The breakdown of the 70 former US Army helicopters is:

36: fully operational (full suite).
24: training (basic suite).
10: spares.

P-3B:

Lockheed Martin was awarded a contract on November 6, 2017 to modernize four Orions. The mid-life upgrade (provides for the modernization and upgrade of four P-3B aircraft in support of structural mid-life upgrades, tailored phased depot maintenance, a country-specific designed mission integration and management system, and new avionics in support of the government of Greece) will extend the service life of 15.000 flight hours per aircraft.

F-16V:

On December 20, 2018 Lockheed Martin was awarded a contract to upgrade 84 F-16s to F-16V configuration. Work is undertaken at Fort Worth, Texas and Athens, Greece and is expected to be completed by June 30, 2027.

On October 17, 2017 the State Department (DSCA) approved the requested upgrade of 123 F-16s to the F-16V variant.

P2002:

Ordered to replace the T-41Ds in service.
