The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential foreign military sale of fast patrol boats to Kuwait under a package worth around $100 million, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 20 February.

Kuwait’s request includes the purchase of fifteen fast patrol boats fitted with 36 .50 calibre machine guns. The request also includes support equipment, training equipment, engineering, technical and logistics support services.

Kuwait intends to use these boats for patrol, interdiction, and maritime protection operations.

If the sale goes ahead, the prime contractor will be Kvichak.
