15th July 2019 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Germany has requested Patriot Advanced Capability 3 (PAC-3) Missiles Segment Enhanced (MSE) from the US government under its foreign military sales programme.

Under a package worth $401 million, the US State Department is considering the request which includes 50 PAC-3 MSE, along with PAC-3 MSE launcher conversion kits, missile round trainers, empty round trainers, launcher stations heater controllers and ground support equipment.

The purchase of these additional missiles will allow Germany to build a more robust air defence capability and increase its air lethality against air defence threats. The purchase will also assist Germany with its NATO commitments. 

Lockheed Martin will be the prime contractor if the sale goes ahead.
