I am almost certain they were built in California. I think Burbank, but it might have been Palmdale.

All over the place

Burbank: 1959-1984
Palmdale: 1984-1991
Marietta: from 1991
From the desert to the sea, to all of Southern California

I thought some were built overseas as well. I want to say Taiwan....


edit: Nope, Kawasaki built them in Japan for JASDF
