Terma has received a contract from General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products for the delivery of 16 low-rate initial production (LRIP) gun pods for the F-35 joint strike fighter (JSF).
Under the $15.9m contract, Terma will deliver the gun pods for the short take-off / vertical landing (STOVL) and carrier version (CV) variants of the F-35 Lightning II aircraft.
Before the delivery, Terma carried out qualification tests including firing and fit-check tests of the gun pods to reduce its weight and lower cost.
During the entire F-35 production phase, Terma will deliver nearly 400 gun pods for the F-35 JSF.
A supersonic, multirole, fifth-generation stealth fighter, the F-35 will replace existing aircraft, including AV-8B Harriers, A-10s, F-16s and F/A-18 Hornets.
