New reports say that Lockheed is close to finalize deal for next F-35 Strike Fighter order.

A new report from Reuters says that Lockhead Martin is making progress to finalize next F-35 Strike Fighter order from the Pentagon. The new order would involve 71 jets. The deal would mean about $4.5 to $5 billion on the books for Lockhead Martin.

Lockhead has deals for the F-35 with the US and eight partner countries. The F-35 is built in three variants including a conventional takeoff landing variant, a short takeoff and vertical landing variant and the F-35 carrier variant.
