Poland places FMS request for Javelin missiles

5th March 2020 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Poland has requested 180 Javelin missiles and 79 Javelin Command Launch Units (CLUs) from the US through the FMS process. The deal is estimated to be worth $100 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has issued a certification notifying the US Congress of the potential sale which was provided on 4 March.

According to a DSCA statement, the sale would ‘help Poland build its long-term defence capacity to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity…Poland will have no difficulty absorbing this system into its armed forces’.

Alongside the above, the request also asks for basic skill trainers, missile simulation rounds, battery coolant units, toolkits, modified two-level maintenance parts, training, transportation and other logistical support.

If the deal is approved, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin will be the main contractors. No offset arrangements have been outlined but Poland usually includes them in their defence contracts.
