When I came across this list of the top 10 Federal contractors, not only were they all defense contractors, it also gave a eyes-glance breakdown of what the U.S. purchases from each. Nice if you're an investor. I find it interesting that the F35 has been in production for 14+ years. Seriously? By the time we get one that works, it'll be time to fund development of a new one. From Nationalpriorities:
10. Huntington Ingalls Industries, $4.7 billion.
Huntington Ingalls describes itself as “America’s largest military shipbuilding company.”
9. BAE Systems, $5.0 billion.
