The agreement includes delivery of the F-35 rudders, vertical leading edges and main landing gear closeout panels for more than 500 aircraft. Production of these mission-critical parts will continue through 2025 within Kongsberg's advanced manufacturing facilities.

"This latest contract is a reflection of Kongsberg's long-lasting partnership and support of the F-35 program. The F-35 production program is now at full rate production and this contract secures work for the next four years, as well as positioning us for continued participation in future production lots," says Terje Bråthen, EVP Aerostructures at KDA.
