GBU-39BThe State Department has cleared a potential $386 million foreign military sale of GBU-39/B Small Diameter Bombs Increment 1 weapons and related equipment to Australia.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Wednesday the sale includes up to 2, 950 GBU-39/B bombs,  50 guided test vehicles equipped with inert fuze, spare and repair parts, training,  engineering, logistics and technical support services.

Boeing (NYSE: BA) will be the principal contractor for production under the FMS deal.
