LM Sniper Pods for Kuwait
Lockheed Martin will provide Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP) to the Kuwait Air Force for its F/A-18C/D Hornet aircraft. The order was added under Lockheed Martin’s existing foreign military sales indefinite delivery/ indefinite quantity contract and includes 14 Sniper ATPs, spares, support equipment and integration. Lockheed Martin had first announced efforts to integrate Sniper ATP on the Kuwait Air Force’s Typhoon aircraft in 2016. Sniper ATP is also used on Canada’s CF-18 and on multinational F-15, F-16, A-10, B-1, B-52 and F-2 aircraft. Additionally, Lockheed Martin is conducting Sniper ATP flight tests on the US Navy’s Super Hornet.
