Israel Aerospace Industries has won a potential $240M contract to manufacture wings for the U.S. Air Force's T-38 Talon supersonic trainer aircraft.

The service branch received four offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract and will obligate $34.4M at the time of award, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

IAI will perform work in Lod, Israel, through January 2033.

T-38 manufacturer Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) said more than 72K Air Force pilots have used trainer when the aircraft entered service in 1961.

To date, there are 500 T-38s owned by the service branch and NASA. The aircraft’s current wing structure is composed of aluminum alloys with internal honeycomb features.
