Report: Navy Includes F-35s, Super Hornets as Unfunded Priorities

1 min read

F-35The U.S. Navy has submitted an “unfunded priority” list to Congress that includes $1.5 billion for the procurement of Boeing-built F/A-18E/Fs and another $270 million for Lockheed Martin-built F-35Cs, Reuters reported Wednesday.

Andrea Shalal writes the military service’s fiscal 2017 budget proposal seeks funds for only two Super Hornets.

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus told the House Appropriations Committee’s defense subcommittee Tuesday the military service wants to procure 14 more Super Hornets in order to keep the production line for Boeing’s multirole fighter aircraft running, Shalal reports.

The report said Navy also proposed an additional $433 million to fund construction of a DDG-51 guided missile destroyer by a Huntington Ingalls IndustriesGeneral Dynamics team.
