As announced in the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015, the UK is investing in a fleet of nine P-8A maritime patrol aircraft, which are being procured via a Foreign Military Sale from the US Government. The Department cannot disclose cost information at this time as its release would prejudice our commercial interests although the sale does include initial sonobuoy provisioning.
