Bridget Lauderdale: Lockheed F-35 Selected by Switzerland

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has won Switzerland’s fighter aircraft competition to provide the F-35 platform along with training and sustainment support services to the Swiss air force.

The Bethesda, Maryland-based contractor said Wednesday that Swiss companies can take part in research, development, manufacturing and maintenance efforts associated with the procurement decision.

“Switzerland will become the 15th nation to join the F-35 program of record, joining several European nations in further strengthening global airpower and security,” said Bridget Lauderdale, vice president and general manager of Lockheed’s F-35 program.

The Swiss government said its federal council chose Lockheed’s jet offering after a technical assessment of four fighter candidates and the country will spend up to $6.5 billion on the aircraft acquisition program.
