Work will be performed in Indiana and is expected to be completed by September 2017.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center is the contracting activity.

The Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter that is highly maneuverable and used in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack.

It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and its allies.

The first Fighting Falcon, a single-seat F-16A, was delivered to the service in 1979.
