Saw Jon posting on the XV-9 thread. Wondering if we can get the 10 AC, 4 delivered, updated info up on the Aussie Database? We have the squadron, and order info now yes/no?

Just wondering?

That has been superseded,
* two airframes (2014) – AU-1 and -2 to the training squadron in the US
* eight airframes (2018) – six airframes to join -1 and -2 at the training Squadron, and two airframes to arrive in Australia end of 2018
* eight airframes (2019) – Direct to Australia
* fifteen airframes (2020) – Direct to Australia
* fifteen airframes (2021) – Direct to Australia
* fifteen airframes (2022) – Direct to Australia
* nine airframes (2023) – Direct to Australia

By end 2023 all 72 airframes will have been produced and delivered by LM to the RAAF (8 direct to the International Training Squadron in the US, and the other 64 airframes direct to Australia).

I think you confused 2 subjects. Neptune's question is all countries LRIP list just to clean that up.

The Australia question is to the firm order for the 8 mentioned including the photos we have of A35-003 and A35-004 now flying at least at Ft Worth, if not on their way to Luke..

Your summary of Aussie orders is as before, and still correct.

MHO,
BP
