Bell Boeing receives CMV-22B production contract

5th July 2018 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Bell Boeing has received a $4.19 billion contract modification for the manufacture and delivery of V-22 aircraft for the US military and the government of Japan, Boeing announced on 2 July.  

The contract modification converts the previously awarded V-22 tiltrotor aircraft advance acquisition contract to a fixed-price-incentive-fee multi-year contract.

The contract will see the delivery of 39 CMV-22B aircraft to the US Navy; 14 MV-22B aircraft to the US Marine Corps; one CV-22B to the US Air Force and four MV-22B aircraft for the government of Japan.

The US Navy’s CMV-22B will ultimately replace its C-2 Greyhound aircraft. The navy will use the new aircraft for transporting personnel and cargo from shore to aircraft carriers.

Chris Gehler, VP for the V-22 program, Bell, said: ‘Bell Boeing is pleased to extend production of the V-22, supporting our warfighters with one of the most versatile and in-demand platforms in the US arsenal. This multi-year production contract provides programme production stability through at least 2024.’
