Refurbished Patriot Shipped to Netherlands

On July 13, the Royal Netherlands Army received its first shipment of recapitalized Patriot fire units from the United States. Under the $105 million sale, the U.S. Army is replacing the radars, launch systems, and fire control units for four Patriot systems. The rebuilt Patriot elements were also installed with a Netherlands-specific dehumidifier system to increase service life. All four recapitalized Patriots are slated for delivery by 2022.
