The U.S. Air Force has won a $53.2 million contract to support Taiwan’s F-16 jet.

The deal includes provision of miscellaneous support for 50 retrofit aircraft to the Taiwan F-16 Peace Phoenix Rising program, the U.S. Department of Defense said in a release today.


This modification provides for contractor over and above support and acquisition of legacy aircraft hardware and equipment.  Work will be performed in Fort Worth, Texas; and Taiwan, and is expected to be completed December 31, 2023.
