Poland, Germany and Sweden have shown interest in Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) missiles, Lockheed Martin has said.

The PAC-3 MSE missile continues to receive strong interest from Poland, Germany and Sweden. Partner nations in the Middle East have also expressed an interest in enhancing their missile defense capabilities with the PAC-3 MSE, the company said in a statement Thursday.

Lockheed Martin along with US state department formalized an agreement for Romania to purchase the PAC MSE missiles and related support equipment. Romania becomes the third customer for the upgraded missiles.
