WASHINGTON, Oct 30, 2015 DSCA
The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Turkey for Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM) and associated equipment, parts and logistical support for an estimated cost of $70 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on October 28, 2015.
The Government of Turkey has requested a possible sale of Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) tail kits comprised of
400 GBU-31(V)1 for use with Mk84 bombs,
200 GBU-31(V)3 for use with BLU-109 bombs,
300 GBU-38 for use with Mk82 bombs,
100 GBU-54 Laser JDAM kits for use with Mk82 bombs,
200 BLU-109 Hard Target Penetrator Warheads, and
1000 FMU-152A/B fuzes.
Non-MDE includes containers, support equipment, spare and repair parts, integration, test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and technical support, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $70 million.
Turkey is a partner of the United States in ensuring peace and stability in the region. It is vital to the U.S. national interest to assist our NATO ally in developing and maintaining a strong and ready self-defense capability. This proposed sale is consistent with those objectives.
