BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – Before deciding on a successor model for the outdated Tornado machines of the Air Force, Boeing (Boeing share) German companies offer industrial partnerships for the operation of an F-18 fleet. A corresponding request for information had been sent to more than 10 German companies, the US aircraft manufacturer announced on Wednesday in Berlin.

“German industrial partners will play an important role in providing support equipment, logistics and overall maintenance, components, local maintenance programs, training and other relevant repair and maintenance solutions for Germany’s Super Hornet and Growler fleet,” the statement said. “The German industry will also have the opportunity to participate in the development of the next generation of jammers (Next Generation Jammers / NGJ) for the EA-18G growlers.”

The SPD, the Greens and the FDP have agreed to procure “a successor system for the Tornado fighter aircraft” at the beginning of the 20th legislative period. According to dpa information, Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht already spoke to Chancellor Olaf Scholz (both SPD) about the billion-dollar project. Afterwards, test orders were placed – also on why the model F-35, which is sometimes described as more modern, is out of the race.
