Poland has submitted a formal request to acquire 32 F-35A aircraft. Also Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson has said that if the US bans Turkey from acquiring the F-35, LM can easily sell the Turkish aircraft to other nations. She said that filling the Turkish production slots would be no problem. She also said that the projected lifetime sales potential of the F-35 is 4,000 aircraft at the moment with 3,200 aircraft being on the program of record. LM think that the F-35 has a similar sales potential to the F-16 which has sold about 4,600 units so far.
