Lockheed Martin aspires to supply Slovakia

LOCKHEED Martin, the largest arms manufacturer in the world, wants to supply transport planes to Slovakia. Its representatives met with the Slovak parliamentary Defence and Security Committee in mid-October as part of a US embassy delegation, the Hospodárske noviny wrote.

Slovakia would buy the planes through the US government in order to receive the same price as the US Army. Based on a request for a price quote, the US government recommended the C-130J airplane for Slovakia. This type of airplane costs around $60 million (Sk1.8 billion) each.

Slovakia is considering buying two or three airplanes.

A tender will be held prior to the final offer.

Lockheed Martin will probably compete with the Italian company Alenia Aeronautica, which is offering the C27J Spartan transport airplanes to Slovakia.
