Vertex Aerospace has won a $9.55 million modification contract to support three Kuwaiti KC-130J tanker aircraft.

“This modification is for Automatic Dependence Surveillance-Broadcast Out installs and also exercises an option for organizational and intermediate depot maintenance and logistics and supply support for three KC-130J aircraft for the government of Kuwait under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program,” the US Department of Defense said in a statement Wednesday.

The Lockheed Martin KC-130J is the latest variant of the family of extended-range tanker version of the C-130 Hercules transport aircraft modified for aerial refueling. 

Work is expected to be completed in August 2020.
