EAST HARTFORD — Pratt & Whitney has been awarded a $194.1 million long-lead contract to produce F135 engines to power the F-35 Lightning II fighter plane. The money will cover the cost of raw materials and production.

Two of P&W’s key international customers — the Italian Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force — are included in the contract.

This is Pratt & Whitney’s sixth lot of F135 engines, and will include 37 install engines, including 18 conventional take-off and landing (CTOL) engines for the U.S. Air Force; seven carrier variant (CV) engines for the U.S. Navy; six short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL) propulsion systems for the U.S. Marine Corps; four CTOL engines for the Italian Air Force; and two CTOL engines for the Royal Australian Air Force.

Deliveries of the main engines will commence in June 2013.

The final number of delivered engines is subject to change based on changing government funding or requirements.
