“The US State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Poland of one hundred eighty (180) Javelin missiles and seventy-nine (79) Javelin Command Launch Units (CLUs) and related equipment for an estimated cost of $100 million,” Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) said in a statement Wednesday.

Any offset agreement will be defined in negotiations between the purchaser and the contractor(s), the statement read.
