Rick Groesch, regional vice-president, Middle East for Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, says the Gulf state is looking at buying 17 or 18 new F-16Vs and these will come with conformal tanks.

Groesch added that if the upgrade deal goes thru, the fleet will be modified in the country with assistance from Lockheed Martin.
