Boeing Co has been awarded a $6.2 billion contract for 36 F-15 aircraft for Qatar’s air force, the Pentagon said in a statement on Friday, reports Reuters.

Boeing will manufacture the aircrafts in north St. Louis County, are expected to be delivered to Qatar by the end of 2022.

According to STL Today, While the F-15, an aircraft originally developed by McDonnell Douglas, is assembled in St. Louis County by Boeing, a network of suppliers mean the job impact of a Qatar deal will be widespread.


In June, Qatar’s Defense Ministry said the deal would create 60,000 jobs in 42 U.S. states while reducing the burden on U.S. forces.

Qatar is an important base for the U.S. military carrying out operations against Islamic State militants and other groups in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and beyond. Al Udeid Air Base is home to more than 11,000 U.S. and coalition troops.
