The parent firm of European aircraft maker Airbus has teamed with US-based Raytheon to bid on a US army cargo plane contract, the two companies announced Tuesday.
The announcement from EADS North America is the latest in a series of moves by European defense firms to get more Defense Department business.
The companies will bid to build a plane used to fly cargo, soldiers and materiel from primitive airfields, in a project known as the Army's Future Cargo Aircraft (FCA) program.
The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company, the main shareholder of Airbus, would get a key foothold in the US military area if the bid is successful.
