The Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme will create and sustain approximately 600 British jobs within prime contractor, Lockheed Martin UK and its supply chain, representing 90% UK content, as the programme moves through the demonstration and manufacture phases. As a percentage of total contract value, approximately 83% of the work will be carried out in England, 7% in Scotland and 10% overseas.

The monetary value of sub-contracts that contribute to the overall programme is a matter for Lockheed Martin UK.
