Germany to upgrade P-3C fleet

3rd August 2017 - 11:41 GMT | by Richard Thomas in London


Germany will upgrade its eight-strong P-3C fleet in a five-year programme that will keep the aircraft at the backbone of the country’s maritime patrol capability for the foreseeable future.

In an announcement on 1 August the US Department of Defense (DoD) revealed that Lockheed Martin is being awarded a $158.5 million contract modification to provide upgrades to the mission computers, acoustic equipment, armament systems and control displays through the FMS programme.

According to the release the upgrade will ‘provide for new mission and acoustic system avionics with a number of German-specific components to satisfy current and future NATO operational requirements’.
