The U.S. State Department green lit a deal worth $82 million to supply Harpoon Joint Common Test Set (JCTS) and related equipment to the Government of India.
The Government of India had requested to buy one Harpoon Joint Common Test Set (JCTS). Also included is one Harpoon Intermediate Level maintenance station; spare and repair parts, support, and test equipment; publications and technical documentation; personnel training; U.S. Government and contractor technical, engineering, and logistics support services; and other related elements of logistics and program support, a Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) release said Monday.
