The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential foreign military sale of four Mk 41 Baseline VII Strike-Length Vertical Launching Systems (VLS) to Finland.

Finland intends to install the VLS on four new corvettes that will make up the Finnish Navy's Squadron 2020. 

Finland’s request also includes spares, handling equipment, test equipment, and engineering, training, technical and logistical support services.

The estimated cost of the package is $70 million.

If the sale goes ahead, Lockheed Martin will be the prime contractor
