Greece receives letter of acceptance for F-35 fighter jets 


Since Wednesday, April 10, the General Directorate of Defence Equipment and Investments has held the Letter of Acceptance (LOA) regarding Greece’s request for F-35 fighter jets.

According to Ekathimerini, this document made its way to Athens, specifically to the defence cooperation office of the American embassy (ODC), by Tuesday afternoon and was subsequently sent to the relevant departments of the National Defence Ministry.

The letter itself outlines a 60-day countdown for the signing of the corresponding contracts.

Sources have suggested that the interstate agreement (FMS) is likely to be finalised shortly before the European elections, as the LOA deadline is on June 9.

The Hellenic Air Force is expected to receive the initial F-35 delivery in 2028.
