Today, Lockheed Martin announced a contract worth $842 million to supply Morocco with 24 F-16 fighter aircrafts and support.
Lockheed Martin and the government of Morocco have had previous contracts together and this one plays upon a smaller deal from last year. The U.S. based Lockheed Martin beat France based Dassault Aviation.
More than 4, 300 F-16 fighter jets have been produced making it one of the world’s most popular fighter jets.
This contract is a big win for Lockheed Martin and marks a further foothold into the North African market.
