Boeing reportedly declined a $ 85 billion Pentagon offer to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) to replace the old Minuteman III.

"Boeing continues to support a strategic acquisition shift that would bring the best of the company to this national priority and demonstrate value to the American taxpayer," said Boeing, second the Bloomberg portal.

On Friday (13), Boeing decided not to compete for the Pentagon program, pointing out that in July, the US company questioned alleged unfair competition.
