NEWCASTLE, AUSTRALIA (BNS): The Australian subsidiary of BAE Systems will provide support service to the F-35 Lightening II combat aircraft that Australia will procure from the US defence company Lockheed Martin.

A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems Australia “for future in-country support of the F-35 following the Australian Government’s approval to procure the first 14 of an expected 100 F-35 aircraft,” BAE said in a statement.

The company will provide readiness and sustainment support to the fifth-generation stealth fighters as per the agreement.
