BAE Systems wins £2.5bn Oman Hawk and Typhoon contract
UK aerospace company BAE Systems has won a £2.5bn aircraft contract with the Sultanate of Oman.
BAE will provide 12 Typhoon fighter jets and eight Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer aircraft.
The contract will cover the supply of the aircraft and in-service support for them and is the latest in a long line of contracts to supply Oman.
Prime Minister David Cameron, who is due to visit the Middle Eastern state on Saturday, welcomed the deal. …
The deal will come as a welcome fillip for BAE following Wednesday’s news that its deal to supply Saudi Arabia with 72 Typhoon fighter[s] has been delayed because of disagreements over the final contract price. BAE has supplied 24 jets to the kingdom so far.
The group said the delay could reduce full-year underlying earnings-per-share by approximately three pence.
BAE has been under pressure to develop an alternative growth strategy following the collapse of its planned merger with European defence company EADS earlier this year.
Britain cannot stop illegal gun-running until it ends its own dalliances with dictators, peace activists said today ahead of a BBC exposé of arms dealers: here.
Arms manufacturer BAE Systems was ordered to pay £350,000 in fines and costs at Hull Crown Court today following the death of a worker who was crushed by a 145-tonne metal press: here.

Omani workers re-instated
At the end of last week that over 500 Omani workers, sacked from their jobs following a hunger strike, have been re-instated.
