BAE Systems has won a contract valued $92 million to upgrade Hybrid Flight Control Computers of Taiwan’s F-16 jets.

A Pentagon release issued today said, “BAE Systems, Endicott, New York, has been awarded a $92,000,000 contract to modify F-16 Hybrid Flight Control Computer to digital capability… This contract involves Foreign Military Sales to Taiwan.”

Work will be performed in Endicott, New York, and is expected to be complete by June 20, 2027.

Taiwan is on track to field one of the largest F-16 fleets in Asia once it takes delivery of 66 F-16 C/D Block 70 jets under an $8 billion deal approved in 2019. It would bring the island’s total number of F-16s, including older versions, to more than 200 by 2026.
