The US State Department has approved sale of Javelin Missiles and Command Launch Units to Georgia for an estimated cost of $75 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on November 17, 2017.

The Government of Georgia has requested to purchase 410 Javelin Missiles, and 72 Javelin Command Launch Units (CLUs) (includes two Javelin Block 1 CLUs to be used as spares).  Also included are ten Basic Skills Trainers (BST); up to 70 simulated rounds; US Government and contractor technical assistance; transportation; and other related elements of logistics and program support. 

The prime contractors will be Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin Joint Venture.  However, these missiles are being provided from US Army stock and the CLUs will be obtained from on-hand Special Defense Acquisition Fund (SDAF)-purchased stock.  There are no known offset agreements proposed in conjunction with this potential sale.
