The handover of the jet was conducted earlier this week at the company's facility in Fort Worth, Texas, but additional details were not provided.
Lockheed Martin said the F-16 Fighting Falcons it is building for Iraq are in a configuration tailored to Iraqi requirements. The contract for the jets also provides for mission equipment and a support package that includes the temporary assignment of personnel to Balad Air Base in Iraq.
"Iraq joins 27 other nations around the world who depend on the F-16 Fighting Falcon to maintain peace and security," said Orlando Carvalho, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. "We are proud to play a role in the defense of a new democracy and look forward to strengthening our partnership with Iraq."
Lockheed's production of F-16s for Iraq is expected to continue through 2017.
