Comment(s):

Del: Lot delivered.
TBD: Lot to be delivered.
TBA: Lot contract to be awarded.

Contracted LRIP 1 - 10: 358 aircraft.
Current delivery lot: LRIP 10 / Lot 10 with deliveries to be completed by 31 December 2018.

Above numbers are subject to change for the lots where the contract is to be awarded.

Corrections:

Canada:

The Canadian government will run a new fighter replacement competition to replace its CF-188 Hornet fleet. No decision has currently been taken and no commitment to purchase 65 F-35As has been made.

Denmark:

The Danish goverment approved the purchase of 27 F-35As.

Italy:

Most likely its numbers for lot 10 - 12 will be decreased: LRIP 10: 2 (4) ; LRIP 11 and 12: 3 (5).

Netherlands:

Intends to buy 37 F-35As. Decision to buy the last three aircraft will be taken in 2019.

FMS nations:

The numbers are reported on total FMS level. Until LRIP 11 the details for the countries are known. From LRIP 12 these details are not yet known (with exception of Japan for its LRIP procurement).
