Boeing has won a contract valued approximately $757 million to build five P-8A Poseidon Maritime Patrol Aircraft for Germany.
“This modification exercises an option for the production and delivery of five Lot 12 P-8A aircraft for the government of Germany,” a U.S. DoD release today said.
Work is expected to be completed in February 2025.
In July 2021, Germany signed a letter of offer and acceptance for five Boeing P-8As under the U.S. government’s Foreign Military Sales process.
German companies that already supply parts for the P-8A include Aljo Aluminum-Bau Jonischeit GmbH and Nord-Micro GmbH. Recently, Boeing signed agreements with ESG Elektroniksystem-und Logistik-GmbH and Lufthansa Technik to collaborate in systems integration, training, support and sustainment work.
“By working with local suppliers, Boeing will provide support, training and maintenance solutions that will bring the highest operational availability to fulfill the German Navy’s missions.”
