Norway Proposes $300M Lockheed C-130 Foreign Sale

Norway wants to acquire two Lockheed Martin-made (NYSE: LMT) planes through an estimated $300 million foreign military sales agreement, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency has told Congress.

In a June 7 notice, DSCA said Norway has proposed to buy two C-130J U.S. Air Force planes, associated parts, equipment, logistical support and training.

The sale would also include nine engines, countermeasure systems, aircraft modifications, government furnished equipment, communication equipment and support, tools and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment.

DSCA said Norway intends to use planes for NATO and coalition missions in Afghanistan, disaster relief, humanitarian missions and other future military deployments.

Norway has helped to carry out coalition operations in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan, NATO training missions in Iraq and peacekeeping and humanitarian operations.

No additional U.S. government or contractor representatives will be required to visit the country.
