In a move that’s shaking up the global defense scene, Lockheed Martin has landed the job to slap some AGM-88G High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missiles (HARMs) onto the F-35s.

This “undefinitized contract” valued at $97 million ain’t just another tech upgrade; it’s a game-changer, a leap into the future of airborne electronic warfare.

The US Department of Defense spilled the beans on this, and it’s not just Uncle Sam benefiting.

The US Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps get a piece of the action, and so do some foreign military sales customers.

We’re talking about the whole shebang – A, B, and C variants of those multi-role F-35 beasts.

Lockheed’s Strategic Initiative

But it ain’t just about strapping missiles on wings.

Lockheed’s going the whole nine yards by setting up F-35 Lot 17 reprogramming labs.

Who’s invited to this party? Australia, Canada, Italy, Norway, and the UK are on the list.
