Iraqi ISR programme includes half a dozen King Air 350ER aircraft.

Textron Aviation will continue to provide contractor logistic support for the Iraqi Air Force (IQAF) fleet of King Air 350ER aircraft under the Peace Dragon ISR programme, the DoD announced on 17 March.

A new $12.55 million contract modification adds six months to the multi-year basic FMS contract.

The original $15.22 million contract for Peace Dragon in March 2017 was followed six months later by an $18.81 modification.

The IQAF fleet includes six King Air 350ERs, according to Shephard Defence Insight. These aircraft are equipped with the General Atomics Lynx-2 synthetic aperture radar.
