On November 19, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced that the U.S. State Department approved three missile and precision-guided munitions sales, two to Japan and one to NATO, totaling $944 million. The first $561 million sale to the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) will include eight SM-3 missiles and 13 SM-3 Block IIA missiles. In the second $63 million sale, the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) is authorized to receive 32 AIM-120C-7 Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM). In the third and final $320.5 million sale, NATO’s Support and Procurement Agency will receive 2,040 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) kits and other precision-guided munitions. The three sales must now be approved by the Senate, after which sales negotiations can begin.
