US approves Javelin sale to Ukraine
The US State Department has approved a possible Foreign Military Sale of 150 Javelin man-portable anti-tank missiles to Ukraine.
Worth $39.2 million including support, Congress has been notified of the approval of the contract that has been determined by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA).
Ukraine has requested ten Javelin command launch units in addition to the missiles, as well as training devices, transportation and support.
This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of Ukraine, and Javelin is anticipated to help the nation build its long-term defence capacity and ‘territorial integrity’, according to the DSCA.
Raytheon will be prime contractor, and there are no offset agreements associated with the contract.
