Boeing Lands $679M Navy Contract to Produce Lot 40 Growler, Super Hornet Jets

Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received a potential two-year, $678.7 million contract to build seven lot 40 EA-18G Growler aircraft, five F/A-18E Super Hornet fighter jets and related aerial electronic attack kits for the U.S. Navy.

The company will perform work in California, Missouri, Minnesota, New York, Texas, Arizona, Ohio and Canada through February 2019 under the sole-source, fixed-price contract, the Defense Department said Monday.

The Naval Air Systems Command will obligate the full contract amount from the service branch’s aircraft procurement funds for fiscal 2016 at the time of award.

The Growler is a variant of the F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter jet and has Advanced Electronically Scanned Array radar, air-to-air missiles, digital datalinks and tactical jamming platforms that work against hostile air defenses.

The Boeing-made Super Hornet is a twin-engine fighter jet that has enclosed weapons pod and conformal fuel tanks and is designed to land and take off from an aircraft carrier.
