Boeing Offering F-15 to South Korea, Lockheed Touts Hercules to Intl. Customers

Both Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) will offer variations of existing aircraft to potential foreign customers, WRWR-TV reported.

Boeing will offer its F-15 Silent Eagle to South Korea, as the country is looking to replace its F-4 Phantom aircraft, according to WRWR.

Brad Jones, Boeing’s F-15 systems combat director, said the South Korean government released a request for proposals Jan. 30.

The U.S. military retired the Phantom in 1996.

Lockheed will offer a variation of its C-130J Hercules aircraft for cargo and personnel transport.

The variation will come without a fully automated cargo handling system and underfloor winch, WRWR reported.

Lockheed began producing the Hercules in 1954 and has built more than 2,300 aircraft for 67 countries.
