USSOCOM orders De Havilland Canada Dash 8
US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has placed a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract with Leidos for one De Havilland Canada Dash 8 aircraft. The contract is valued at $22.7 million and was not awarded as part of a competitive tender.
The purchase is being financed by FY2020 procurement funds with the majority of the work being completed in Bridgewater, Virginia.
The aircraft will be adapted with specific modifications as requested by USSOCOM.
The aircraft procured may be an attrition replacement for a USSOCOM-operated Dash 8 lost in an attack by al-Shabab militants on an air base in Kenya earlier this year.
