Jordan is to join the international F-16 Block 70/72 programme, with manufacturer Lockheed Martin announcing on 16 June that the country has signed a letter of acceptance (LOA) for the aircraft.

“The selection of new-production F-16 aircraft extends Jordan’s existing fleet of F-16s, bringing advanced capabilities to the mission combined with affordable operating and life-cycle costs,” Lockheed Martin said.

No details pertaining to contract values or delivery timelines were disclosed.
