Australian Hawk Upgrade Contract

  • GBP90 M contract awarded for Australian Hawk upgrades

The Minister for Defence Materiel for the Commonwealth of Australia has awarded a £90m contract to us for the upgrade of their Mk127 Hawk fleet. 

Known as Project AIR5438, the upgrade to the Australian Hawk fleet will deliver an enhanced training capability and also encompass the supply of three Full Mission Simulators, RAAF aircrew/groundcrew training and support.


Both BAE Systems UK and BAE Systems Australia have been working closely with the Australian Department of Defence to define the scope of the upgrade, leveraging off previous Hawk programs and experience.

The upgrade of the Australian Hawk fleet will ensure its effectiveness into the next decade and provides a solid foundation for the progression of aircrew onto the F/A-18 Classic and Super Hornets and the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) when it is introduced into service.
