The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Greece for the purchase of spare parts and services for F100-PW-229 engines for the Hellenic Air Force F-16 aircraft, and associated equipment, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $250 million.
The Government of Greece has requested the purchase of spare parts and services for F100-PW-229 engines for the Hellenic Air Force F-16 aircraft, to include: Inlet/Fan Modules, Core Engine Modules, Rear Compressor Drive Turbines, Fan Drive Turbine Modules, Augmentor Duct and Nozzle Modules, and Gearbox Modules. In addition, the proposed sale will include support equipment, publications and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor technical, engineering, and logistics support services, and other related elements of program support. The estimated cost is $250 million.
This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a NATO ally.
The uninterrupted supply of spare parts and support will ensure the Hellenic Air Force sustains its aircraft fleet at the highest state of readiness to face any potential threats.
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
The proposed sale will not be for one sole source contract for this sale. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Greece.
There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
