Canada requests C-17 sustainment support
The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential $195 million foreign military sale to Canada for sustainment support of its C-17 military transport aircraft, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 20 April.
The Canadian government has requested follow-on support for its five C-17 aircraft, which in Canada is designated the CC-177. Canada's current support contract is set to expire in September 2017.
The request includes contractor logistics support provided through the Globemaster III Integrated Sustainment Program, field services support, aircraft maintenance and technical support.
Support equipment, alternate mission equipment, software support, spares, personnel training and equipment, major modification and retrofit kits support are also included in the request.
If it goes ahead, the prime contractors for the sale will include Boeing and Lockheed Martin.
