The US has approved a foreign military sale to Poland valued at $200 million for Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missiles Extended Range (JASSM-ER), the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 28 November.

Poland has requested 70 AGM-158B JASSM-ER, two AGM-158B flight test vehicles, two AGM-158B mass simulant vehicles, one AGM-158B flight test vehicle – Captive Carry, and three AGM-158B separation test vehicles.

Two AGM-158B weapon system simulators, F-16 operational flight plan upgrade for the Polish F-16C/D, JASSM-ER integration, missile containers, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment are also included in the request.

The equipment will improve Poland's ability to meet current and future threats of enemy air and ground weapons systems, strengthen its air-to-ground strike capabilities and increase its contribution to future NATO operations. 

If it goes ahead the prime contractor for the sale will be Lockheed Martin.
