WASHINGTON — Leonardo is back in the T-X competition and will be proposing the T-100 with its U.S. subsidiary DRS as the prime contractor.
The announcement on Wednesday follows a dramatic falling-out between the Italian firm and Raytheon, its partner and prime contractor in the trainer competition. The companies last month confirmed that they would not pursue the program together, following disagreements over the price of the aircraft. The T-100 is based on Leonardo's M-346, which the Italian firm currently builds in Italy and has already sold to Israel, Singapore, Italy and Poland.
