The US State Department has approved sale of AIM-120C-7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) for an estimated cost of $250 million to Poland.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale Tuesday.

The Government of Poland has requested to purchase up to 150 AIM-120C-7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM). Also included are missile containers, weapon system support, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, US Government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistical and program support.

This potential sale would support Poland’s F-16 fighter program and enhances Poland’s ability to provide for its own territorial defense and support coalition operations. Poland previously purchased the AIM-120C-7 missile.

The prime contractor will be Raytheon Missile Systems, Tucson, AZ. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
