Major Tool & Machine and Faxon Machining will vie for warhead case orders under a potential seven-year, $600M indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from the U.S. Air Force.

Air Force Life Cycle Management Center selected the two companies after a small business set-aside competition to manufacture BLU-136/B next-generation area attack warhead cases. The service branch will obligate $109,500 in fiscal 2019 ammunition production funds at the time of award.

Contract work will take place at contractor facilities in Ohio and Indiana through Sept. 30, 2026.
