Summary

Summary

The Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom has selected the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) as a replacement for its Harrier aircraft and may purchase up to 150 JSF aircraft. This volume examines overlap of final assembly and repair, the suitability of four UK aerospace companies as potential sites for final assembly, associated costs, and technology transfer implications.
