Work will be performed and has an estimated completion date of August 2021. The contract is 100 percent foreign military sales to Saudi Arabia.

The 338th Specialized Contracting Squadron is the contracting activity.

The Royal Saudi Air Force has flown the F-15S fighters since the 1990s, Boeing said.

The F-15SA was rolled out in 2013 and featured improved performance and increased survivability at a lower life-cycle cost.

It also features two additional wing stations for increased payload and capability.
