Boeing wins $9.2 billion contract for new Air Force training jet

Boeing teamed up with Sweden’s Saab AB (SAABb.ST) to develop a new plane for the competition, beating out Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) and Leonardo DRS (LDOF.MI).

The Air Force currently plans to purchase 351 of the jets and 46 simulators. Additional purchase options on the $9.2 billion contract, first reported by Reuters, could allow the Air Force to buy as many as 475 of the jets and 120 simulators.

The service expects the first jets to be delivered in 2023 with the program to reach full operation in 2034.

In its bid, Lockheed had offered a modified version of its T-50 training jet developed jointly with Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd (047810.KS) while Italy’s Leonardo DRS had offered the T-100, a modified version of the Italian aerospace company’s M-346.

The Air Force wants to replace its aging fleet of T-38 planes, which are nearly 50 years old. Analysts have said it could eventually buy up to 600 planes.

General Arnold Bunch of the office of the assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition told reporters that “two-thirds of what we train for the fighters in the fourth and the fifth gen(eration) we actually can’t do in the T-38.”

Winning the contract is significant for Boeing, which reorganized its defense business more than a year ago in the hopes of a “franchise level” victory such as the trainer.

Landing big defense contracts had been difficult for Boeing, but Leanne Caret, chief executive of Boeing’s Defense, Space & Security since February 2016, has helped the company win more contracts.

“Today’s announcement is the culmination of years of unwavering focus by the Boeing and Saab team,” Caret said in a statement. “We expect T-X to be a franchise program for much of this century.”

The award from the Air Force comes after Boeing has had trouble delivering to the Air Force its new in-air refueling jet, the KC-46.

In a statement Saab said the award means Boeing can now begin placing orders with its suppliers, including Saab, but has not done so yet. Saab said that more than 90 percent of Boeing’s offering will be made in America, supporting more than 17,000 jobs in 34 states.

    2. TX means Xperiment far beyond commissioning.

      The first jets to be delivered in 2023 with the program to reach full operation in 2034. --> 5 years to come.

      Phil already have T50 which is have higher ability compare to diz. Phil should get gen 4 or 4.5 jets no longer needed for train jets or light attack jet.

  8. Wow, pertama bilang 351 unit.
    Trus kemudian ada opsi tambahan menjadi total 475 unit.
    Trus terakhir bilang 600 unit.

    Kalaupun hanya 351 unit saja, populasinya bisa jauh melebihi jet T50 punya LM & KAI.

    Itu hanya untuk US saja, belum kalo diekspor ke negara2 lain.

    Berarti spare part akan lebih banyak tersedia untuk TX.

    Bisa jadi sesudah tahun 2034 (20 tahun sesudah T50 mulai digunakan RI), RI akan beli TX ini untuk menjaga keberlangsungan ketersediaan spare partnya.

    Jadi saat T50 golden eagle punya RI mulai dipensiunkan di tahun 2044 (Tahun 2044 itu T50i sudah 30 tahun dipakai), sudah ada cadangan TX ini.
