DOD could order 450 F-35s, boosting production for Lockheed

AIA dailyLead® | Jun 01, 2015

The Pentagon could order up to 450 Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jets, purchasing 150 of the latest-generation military aircraft annually for three years. Meeting such an order would require a production rate that is "far more than the world has seen for any combat plane since the 1980s," said analyst Richard Aboulafia.
