Cassidian has been awarded a contract for the structural modifications on five fuselages of the Spanish Air Force (SPAF) F-5 E/F Tiger II aircraft fleet.

The newly awarded contract follows previous contracts aimed at modifying the F-5 to ensure the aircraft’s operational safety.

Under the new contract, the company will continue to upgrade the Northrop Grumman-built F-5 light supersonic fighter aircraft fleet.

Work will be conducted at the company’s facilities in Getafe, Spain.
