Boeing delivers 1st Super Hornet featuring HAL gun bay door

Boeing [NYSE: BA] on July 20 delivered to the U.S. Navy the first F/A-18 Super Hornet featuring a gun bay door manufactured by India-based Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

HAL manufactures the doors at its facility in Bangalore, India.

The gun bay door contract is the first military contract between Boeing and HAL. It is a direct result of Boeing's industrial participation commitment to India, which includes creating jobs with indigenous companies. The two companies also work together on projects for the P-8I multi-mission maritime aircraft and for the commercial Boeing 777 airplane.

The Boeing F/A-18IN Super Hornet is a competitor in India's Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft Competition.
