If it goes ahead the Foreign Military Sale (FMS) will have an estimated cost of $300 million. It will include 20 F-117-PW-100 engines and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support.
US Congress was notified of the request by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) on 7 March 2012.
