Lockheed’s missile and fire control business will serve as the prime contractor on the deal that covers provision of up to 4, 000 AGM-114 R/K Hellfires and associated equipment, training and technical support services to the UAE over a three-year period, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Friday.

DSCA added the FMS contract does not require deployment of U.S. government or contractor representatives to UAE.
