Pratt & Whitney has secured a new agreement with the South Korean government to provide F100 engine sustainment support for the country’s F-15 Eagles and F-16 Fighting Falcons.

Pratt & Whitney started performing the contract requirements in December, with the sustainment work expected to run through the second half of 2027.

The company will deliver maintenance support for South Korea’s 180 F-16 units acquired from Lockheed Martin and 60 F-15s purchased from Boeing.

The RTX company signed the $355 million deal with the Defense Acquisition Program Administration, marking the third consecutive performance-based logistics arrangement between the two parties since 2012.

“These contracts are a win-win for both customers and industry because they offer more efficient affordability and availability,” Chris Johnson, vice president of fighter and mobility programs at Pratt & Whitney, said in a statement.

The contract award is expected to build the operational capabilities of ROKAF’s fighter jets. According to RTX, through the partnership, the military service will enhance its depot planning and overall fleet readiness through long-term material forecasting.
