PZL Mielec will begin production of F-16 fuselage

A Mielec, Poland-headquartered business arm of Lockheed Martin has joined the global F-16 program as a manufacturer of major components and assemblies for the upcoming Block 70/72 of the fighter aircraft.

PZL Mielec will begin production of F-16 Block 70/72 rear fuselage, center fuselage, cockpit side panel and forward equipment bay in 2022 from its facilities in Poland, Lockheed said.

The Polish aerospace manufacturer will deliver the completed assemblies to the Lockheed final assembly line in Greenville, South Carolina.

The Polish company’s services will help address orders for the latest generation of F-16s from five customers around the world.
