New AMRAAM sale to Japan moves closer

27th August 2020 - 17:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Japan is set to receive more AIM-120C-8 AMRAAM, after the US State Department gave the green light for Raytheon Missile Systems to sell 32 of the missiles for an estimated cost of $63 million.

The Japanese government is also requesting one AIM-120C-8 AMRAAM guidance section spare, the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 26 August.

Shephard  last month identified the AIM-120C-8 as a potential weapon for inclusion in the F-15 Japan Super Interceptor modernisation programme.

According to Shephard Defence Insight, 92 AIM-120C-8 missiles were previously delivered to Japan.
