A new financial report projects that the largest US defense contractors are looking forward to a new bonanza of expensive aircraft sales to Gulf states and Israel, including an extra squadron of F-15 jets, the Defense News reported on Friday.
“The… finalization of a ten-year military funding plan for Israel [is] expected to be in the $40 billion to $50 billion range,” the newspaper stated, citing a financial report from Guggenheim Securities. “If the final figure ends up on the higher edge, Israel could seek to add two squadrons of F-15s.”
The finalization of Israel’s foreign military funding package could mean a surge in new spending on US aircraft, including more purchases of Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets, according to Guggenheim Securities.
