Singapore awards decade-long F-15SG support contract to Boeing

Boeing announced on December 21 that it has been awarded a ten-year-long contract by the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) to support its fleet of F-15SG Strike Eagle multi-role fighters.

As part of this performance based logistics (PBL) contract, Boeing will provide customised support services that are designed to sustain the RSAF’s F-15SG aircraft for the next decade. Additionally, Boeing’s field service representatives in Singapore will continue to deliver on-site technical support for the multi-role fighters. This is the fourth PBL contract to be awarded to Boeing by the RSAF for the provision of support services for the nation’s F-15SG fleet.

Andy Vest, director of Far East defense services at Boeing, said: “This tailored, performance-based solution, coupled with Boeing’s platform expertise helps our Singapore customer to optimise the full capability of their fleet. We look forward to our continued partnership with Singapore and further supporting their mission readiness needs.”

The RSAF has operated the Boeing F-15SG Strike Eagle since May 2009. The platform achieved full operational capability (FOC) in September 2013. AirForces Intelligence data states that the air arm currently operates 40 examples of the multi-role fighter.
