Washington DC (SPX) Nov 11, 2010
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress November 3 of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of the United Arab Emirates of 100 Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) and 60 Low Cost Reduced-Range Practice Rockets (LCRRPR), as well as associated equipment, training and logistical support for a total package worth approximately $140 million.

The Government of the United Arab Emirates has requested a possible sale of 100 Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS), 60 Low Cost Reduced-Range Practice Rockets (LCRRPR), publications and technical documentation, training, U.S. government and contractor technical and engineering support, and other related elements of program support. The estimated cost is $140 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 friendly country which has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.

The United Arab Emirates intends to use these defense articles and services to modernize its armed forces and expand existing army architecture to counter threats posed by potential attack. This will contribute to the UAE military's goal of updating capability while further enhancing interoperability with the U.S. and other allies.

The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
