Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received a potential $2.6B contract modification to produce 15 lot 5 KC-46 tanker aircraft for the U.S. Air Force.

The Department of Defense said Friday the company will also provide five wing refueling pod kits, two spare engines, licenses and subscriptions, G081 flat file, data and support equipment as part of the modification, which exercises an option under a previously awarded contract.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center will obligate the full contract amount using the service branch’s aircraft procurement funds from fiscal year 2017 through FY 2019.

Work will occur in Seattle through March 2023.
