FORT WORTH, TEXAS (BNS): Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $1.2 billion contract to upgrade 134 F-16 aircraft for the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF).

The upgrades are based on the advanced F-16V configuration. Among the enhancements are an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, a modern commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)-based avionics subsystem, a large-format, high-resolution center pedestal display and a high-volume and high-speed data bus, the Company said.

The contract for the ROKAF upgrade is a foreign military sales contract issued by the US Air Force.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a combat-proven multi-role fighter. The F-16 currently serves as the workhorse of the fighter fleet for 25 nations around the world.
