(MENAFN) British defence firm BAE Systems has won a USD23 million contract to provide F-16 support equipment, test systems, and spares to the government of Oman, Arabian Business reported.

The company said the contract continues the its strong global position to deliver the right systems and expertise to support F-16 aircraft operated by US allies.

The contract is part of a drive to secure sales of more than 100 aircraft.

In December last year, UK Prime Minister David Cameron came to Muscat to seal a deal for BAE Systems to sell 12 Eurofighter Typhoon combat jets and eight Hawk 128 advanced jet trainers.

Oman is now the seventh country in the world, and the second in the Middle East, to operate the Typhoon, joining the air forces of the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Saudi Arabia.

BAE Systems has delivered more than 25,000 support equipment and test systems to more than 24 countries worldwide.
