Lockheed wins $140 mln order for two Iraqi planes

Lockheed Martin Corp has won a contract valued at $140 million (R1144 million) to provide two additional four-engine C-130J transport planes to the Iraqi government, the Pentagon said.
It said the US Air Force contract also included non-recurring engineering and integration tasks associated with the new configuration of C-130J planes being built specifically for the Iraqi government.
The US Air Force in April already added up to $293 million (R2394 million) to an earlier Lockheed contract for four of the workhorse C-130J military transport planes.
