Vertex Aerospace won a contract valued $10 million to support KC-130J aircraft with air-to-air refueling capability.
The country ordered three KC-130Js in 2010. The tanker is designed for mid-air refueling of military aircraft to extend their range and loitering time.
The modification contract announced today exercises an option to provide organizational and intermediate depot maintenance, logistics and supply support for three KC-130J aircraft for the government of Kuwait. Additionally, this modification provides limited repair of common support equipment, a U.S. DoD release today said.
Work will be performed in Abdullah Al-Mubarak Air Base, Kuwait, and is expected to be completed in August 2022.
