Orbital ATK to continue Iraqi CLS

10th August 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Orbital ATK will continue to provide Contractor Logistic Support (CLS) for the Iraqi Air Force’s Armed Caravan programme under an $11 million contract announced on 9 August.

The AC-208 Combat Caravan is a missionized Cessna 208 aircraft supplied to the Iraqi Air Force by the US government. The aircraft is also operated in reconnaissance (RC-208B) and trainer aircraft (TC-208B) variants in Iraq.

The contract will see Orbital provide sustained CLS services including maintenance and support training for the modified aircraft fleet. Also included are spare parts, component repair, publication updates, maintenance training and logistics.

Orbital ATK has been supporting the Iraqi Air Force since 2007 when the first missionized Cessna 208 was delivered out of the company’s Fort Worth Special Mission Aircraft facility.

The contract includes additional options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to $118 million and extend the period of performance through 2020.
