The Council of Ministers of the Spanish Government approved on December 15, 2018 three armament programs totaling 7,331 million euros.

Five F-110 tracts will be built between 2019 and 2032 for 4,325 million; will acquire 348 8×8 vehicles from the Spanish Army, to be delivered until the year 2025, for 2,100 million; and the Eurofighter combat aircraft will be updated for 906 million.

The Government has already invested 92 million in the technological programs of the 8×8, awarded to a UTE integrated by Santa Bárbara Sistemas, Indra and Sapa. The impact of the program on employment (650 direct and 1000 indirect jobs) will be especially important in Alcalá de Guadarira (Seville), Trubia (Asturias), Aranjuez (Madrid) and Andoain (Gipuzkoa).
