Lockheed Martin Says F-16 Fighter Jets for Bulgaria to be Made in U.S.

U.S. security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin said on Wednesday a possible relocation of its F-16 fighter jet production line to India will not affect a planned deal with Bulgaria, as the aircraft for Bulgaria will be manufactured in the U.S.“The F-16 Block 70 aircraft for Bulgaria, the very latest version of NATO’s benchmark single-engine fighter, will be manufactured at Lockheed Martin’s F-16 production line in Greenville, South Carolina, where aircraft for Bahrain and Slovakia will also be built," the company said in a statement."We have not planned, nor have we ever suggested having F-16s for Bulgaria manufactured in any other country, including India,” Jim Robinson, F-16 Bulgaria campaign lead, Lockheed Martin, said. Earlier this week, Reuters reported that Lockheed Martin has offered to move its F-16 production line from the U.S. to India.
