` Pentagon investigation has uncovered `Chinese’ materials in major `US’ Weaponry ‘

#AceWorldNews After discovering China-made components in the F-35 fighter jet, a Pentagon investigation has uncovered Chinese materials in other major US weaponry, including Boeing Co’s B-1B bomber and certain Lockheed Martin Corp F-16 fighters, Reuters reported.

The US Defence Department said titanium mined in China may also have been used to build part of a new Standard Missile-3 IIA being developed jointly by Raytheon Co and Japan.

The incidents raised fresh concerns about lax controls by US contractors.

Weapons makers are banned from using raw materials from China and a number of other countries.
