The indefinite-delivery vehicle requirements contract has a cumulative face value of $1.65 billion, the Department of Defense said Friday.
C-130 engine repairs will continue at Rolls-Royce’s facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, through June 30.
The Air Force Lifecycle Management Center at Robins AF Base in Georgia is the contracting activity.
Rolls-Royce AE2100D3 turboprop engines power the Lockheed Martin-built (NYSE: LMT) aircraft platform that the service branch and its components use to conduct airlift operations.
