The Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States (TECRO) is to order recertification of Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) missiles for Taiwan in a $620 million potential FMS deal, pending authorisation from Congress.

Lockheed Martin will act as prime contractor.

‘This proposed sale will help sustain the recipient's missile density and ensure readiness for air operations,’ the US Defence Security and Cooperation Agency (DCSA) announced on 9 July.

It added that the deal includes ‘replacement of expiring Limited Life Components (LLCs) and certification testing in order to support an operational life of thirty years’ plus associated services including spare parts, ground support equipment and other logistics support.
