Top Defense Contractor Handed China Technical Docs on Our Best Weaponry - Truthhurts

Posted: May 6th, 2021 - 11:26 am

Here Is the DOJ's Infuriating 'Punishment'

The defense contractor Honeywell was recently fined $13 million by the State Department for allegedly violating international arms trafficking laws after it was found that the company exported sensitive technical drawings of American military technologies to China and other countries in 2018.

Honeywell is alleged to have exported technical details of the F-35, F-22, B-1B, C-130, A-7H and A-10 aircraft, as well as the Tomahawk Cruise Missile and the M1A1 Abrams Tank to multiple countries including China, according to The Drive.

According to the report, state officials believe that the transfer of information harmed American national security.

Despite this alleged damage, a news release from the State Department announced that the department and Honeywell had reached a settlement that will see Honeywell pay damages of $13 million, of which the first $5 million will be suspended provided that the company spends the money on strengthening its compliance program.

The release states that the transferred information “contained engineering prints showing dimensions, geometries, and layouts for manufacturing castings and finished parts for multiple aircraft, gas turbine engines, and military electronics to and/or within Canada, Ireland, Mexico, the People’s Republic of China, and Taiwan.”

There's a lot more to this in the article itself.
