Speaking at the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT), Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon has announced two contracts worth almost £120 million.

I am proud to say that this milestone has been delivered on time and, through stalwart efforts on behalf of the technical and commercial project team members, under budget.
