BAE Wins $4B Typhoon, Hawk Aircraft Sale

BAElogoBAE Systems has won an estimated $3.9 billion contract to provide 20 fighter and trainer jets, as well as in-service operational support to Oman’s air force.

The contract is for 12 Typhoon fighter jets and eight Hawk advanced jet trainer aircraft with deliveries set to start in 2017, the Hindu Business Line reported Sunday.

Amrita Nair-Ghaswalla writes the sale makes Oman the seventh country in the world to operate the Typhoon and provides a boost for the Hawk program, which BAE wants to re-equip the U.S. Air Force with.

Saudi Arabia is also buying up to 30 Hawk aircraft under a separate $808 million award, where pilots will fly the Hawk for training prior to the Eurofighter.
