WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Rockwell Collins has received a $30 million contract to provide manufacturing and technical services for the Pakistan Air Force's fleet of C-130 aircraft.

In addition to technical support, training and installation services, the contract also includes the delivery of 11 C-130E model kits and five C-130B integrated avionics suites and kits. The company will also be tasked with developing a consolidated flight manual for C-130 E and B variants, as well as checklists and maintenance supplements to help the PAF sustain their fleet.

Work on the contract, which comes through a foreign military sale to Pakistan, will be performed at the Nur Khan Base in Islamabad.

C-130 aircraft are designed for transportation of troops, equipment and additional supplies, and are also used for humanitarian and disaster relief missions.
