NATO requests C-17 logistics support

4th May 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential $300 million foreign military sale to the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) for continuation of C-17 logistics support services and equipment, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 28 April.

The request includes follow-on support for three C-17 aircraft under the Global Reach Improvement Programme, contract labour for Class I modifications and kits, in-country contractor support, alternate mission equipment, major modification and retrofit, software support, aircraft maintenance and technical support.

The request also includes support equipment, training and spare and repair parts.

The three C-17s are operated by a consortium of twelve nations. This Strategic Airlift Capability programme flies missions in and around Europe, Afghanistan, Iraq and North Africa. This request will see the fleet continue to be supported, as the current support arrangement ends in September 2017.

If the sale goes ahead, the prime contractor will be Boeing.
