The proposed sale will improve Latvia’s capability to meet current and future threats in the Baltic Sea maritime domain.  Latvia’s increased coastal defense capability and interoperability with U.S. and NATO armed forces will contribute to both U.S. and Latvian defense and security objectives in the Baltics.  Latvia will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment into its armed forces. 

The principal contractor is to be determined.  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 U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Latvia. 

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.  The description and dollar value are for the highest estimated quantity and dollar value based on initial requirements.  Actual dollar value will be lower depending on final requirements, budget authority, and signed sales agreement(s), if and when concluded.
