The Defense Department said Iraq will purchase 22 AN/APG-68 (V) radars, Oman’s air force will purchase 15 of those systems and Thailand’s air force will purchase 9 units.

Work will occur in Linthicum Heights, Md. with an expected completion date of March 31, 2015.

Taiwan is the first international customer to purchase those systems.
