The U.S. Air Force‘s Ogden Air Logistics Complex has completed a five-year effort to refurbish 24 Lockheed Martin-built F-16 Fighting Falcon jets for the Indonesian air force under an aircraft acquisition and refurbishment agreement between the two service branches.
The Air ForceÂ said WednesdayÂ it willÂ deliver the last six of 24 Block-25 C and D variants of the upgraded F-16s to Indonesia via aÂ trans-Pacific flight.
The jets warehoused by the Ogden ALC’s 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group were previously part of the Air Force and Air National Guard fleets.
Ogden ALC offered to modernize 19 single-seat F-16Cs and five two-seater F16-DsÂ for IndonesiaÂ in 2011Â as part of theÂ U.S. Excess Defense Articles program, Defense News reported Saturday.
The report said the $750 million upgrade package includes newÂ AN/ALE-47 countermeasures dispenser systems fromÂ BAE Systems, AN/APG-68 radar systems fromÂ Northrop Grumman, AN/ALR-69 radar warning receivers from RaytheonÂ andÂ AN/ALQ-213 electronic warfare management systems fromÂ Terma.
