State Department clears $944 million in missiles for Japan, NATO

“The U.S. State Department cleared a trio of foreign military sales Monday, with an eye on arming some of America’s closest partners. The potential sales, announced by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), include a package of SM-3 missiles for Japan at an estimated cost of $561 million, a tranche of AIM-120C-7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles for Japan with an estimated cost of $63 million, and a package of Precision Guided Munitions kits for NATO’s Support & Procurement Agency, worth an estimated $320.5 million. All told, the sales could combine for a net of $944.5 million for American firms. Raytheon is the primary contractor for the Japanese deals, and the co-primary with Boeing on the NATO agreement. As with all DSCA announcements, the sales must pass through the Senate, at which point negotiations can begin; total quantities and dollar totals often change from the original DSCA announcement and final sale.”
