The US State Department has made a determination approving a potential foreign military sale of aircraft follow-on support and services to Saudi Arabia, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced on 24 May.

In a package worth $800 million, Saudi Arabia has requested follow-on support and services for Royal Saudi Air Force aircraft, engines and weapons; publications and technical documentation; support equipment; spare and repair parts; repair and return; calibration support and test equipment; logistics support; and other related elements of programme support.

Equipment and spares will be procured for support of, but not limited to, F-5, RG-5, F-15, C-130, KC-130, E-3, RE-3, and KE- 3 aircraft.

Implementation of this sale will sustain Saudi Arabia's flight and maintenance activity. It will improve sustainability and continue support for the fleet.
