The US State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Peru for Reconditioned Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicles for an estimated cost of $668 million.
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on December 2, 2016.
The Government of Peru has requested a possible sale of 178 Reconditioned Stryker Infantry Carrier Vehicles; 178 M2 Flex .50 Cal Machine Guns; and 178 Remote Weapon Stations (RWS).
Also included are driver’s vision enhancers; Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation capability; sets of special tools testing equipment; associated M2 Flex spare parts and tripods; M6 Smoke Grenade launchers and associated spares; VIC-3 systems; Operators New Equipment Training (OPNET) and Field Level Maintenance Training (FLMNET); publications; training manuals; Contractor Field Service Representative support; contractor and concurrent spare parts; project office technical support; U.S. Government technical assistance; packaging, crating, and handling; de-processing services for shipment; and associated transportation.
Peru intends to use these defense articles and services to modernize its armed forces. This acquisition would support the first major step in Peru’s acquisition strategy to build a multi-dimensional brigade by 2030.
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
The prime contractor for this program is General Dynamics Land Systems. There are no known offset agreements in connect with this potential sale.
