Lockheed Martin has secured a $42.3 million contract to provide 10 upgrade kits for Pakistan’s F-16 A/B aircraft, under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program.

Despite troubled relations with Washington after the American special forces’ 2 May raid into Pakistan to kill Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden, the Pentagon continues to support the South Asian country’s air force.

The upgrade kit deal follows a late July announcement that specialist communications producer L-3 Communications was awarded a contract to build two F-16C Block 52 aircrew training devices for the Pakistan Air Force.
