The U.S. State Department approved a possible Foreign Military Sale to Greece of Follow-on Support for F-16 Engine Maintenance and related equipment for an estimated cost of $233 million.

As per a statement issued by the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), Greece had requested to buy parts and services to support follow-on depot level maintenance and sustainment of F100-PW-229 engines to include spare, repair parts, and accessories; repair and return services; publications and technical documentation; U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistical services; and other related elements of logistical and program support.

The proposed sale will improve Greece’s capability to meet current and future threats by providing greater depth of repair capability for engines on their F-16 Block 52+/52+ Advanced aircraft, sustaining their weapon system, and improving aircraft capability rates, the agency said.
