    US-based multinational conglomerate General Electric (GE) won a $98 million Defense Logistics Agency contract to remanufacture engines for F-16 and F-15 fighter aircraft, the Department of Defense said in a press release on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — GE’s F110 family of engines power F-15 and F-16 fighter aircraft. The first F-15s entered operational service with the US Air Force in 1976, almost 41 years ago, and the first F-16s entered service in 1978.

    The contract stipulates that the remanufactured engines are to be delivered by October 30, 2018, the release noted.
