Iraq - AGM -114K/R Hellfire Missiles

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Iraq for AGM-114K/R Hellfire Missiles and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $82 million.

The Government of Iraq has requested a possible sale of 500 AGM-114K/R Hellfire missiles, Hellfire missile conversion, blast fragmentation sleeves, and installation kits, containers, transportation, spare and repair parts, support equipment, personnel training and training equipment, publications and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor technical, engineering, and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support.  The estimated cost is $82 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 strategic partner.  This proposed sale directly supports the Government of Iraq and serves the interests of the people of Iraq and the United States.

Iraq will use the Hellfire missiles to help improve the Iraq Security Forces’ capability to support current on-going ground operations.  Iraq will also use this capability in future contingency operations.  Iraq will have no difficulty absorbing these additional weapon systems into its armed forces.

The proposed sale of these missiles will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
 
The principal contractor will be Lockheed Martin Corporation in Bethesda, Maryland.  There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will not require any additional U.S. Government and contractor representatives to Iraq.

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.
