L-3 FUZING AND ORDNANCE

L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems has won a $37.3 million US Army contract to provide Saudi Arabia with more than 38,000 M734A1 multi-option fuses and 165,000 point detonating fuses.

"L-3 Fuzing and Ordnance Systems [of] Cincinnati, Ohio was awarded a $37.3 million… foreign military sales contract (Saudi Arabia)…[for] 38,284 M734A1 multi-option fuses; and… 165,426 M783 point detonating/delay fuses," the US department of defense announced Tuesday.

Earlier this month, the US State Department approved the resumption of weapons sales to Riyadh, thus signaling that the new Trump administration would seek closer ties with Saudi Arabia.

Last week, President Donald Trump hosted Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the White House.
