BAE Systems wins Indian Hawk contract
BAE Systems has announced that they have been awarded a contract for the provision of spares and ground support equipment to aid the Hawk training aircraft operations in India. According to the company, this brings the total value of Hawk related contracts won in India to more than £600 million in the last 18 months.
BAE Systems called the award a reinforcement of the company’s strong relationship with the Indian Air Force (IAF) and aircraft manufacturer Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL). HAL manufactures the Hawk in India with materials, parts and support services provided by BAE Systems.
The contract is worth £59 million to BAE Systems, and will see the IAF’s Hawk aircraft fleet – one of the largest in the world – sustained, ensuring the continued availability of the fleet.
