India’s government will purchase Boeing-built (NYSE: BA) missile systems and related equipment under a $200 million foreign military sale transaction approved by the U.S. State Department.
The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Tuesday the deal covers procurement of 12 UGM-84L Harpoon Block II missiles, 10 UTM-84L missile trainers, two certification training vehicles, spares, technical manuals and logistics support.
Boeing and Virginia-based technology firm Delex Systems are the primary contractors for the FMS deal.
The government of India is buying the missile system for integration into Shishumar-class submarines and to defend Indian sea lines of communication, according to DSCA.
The Indian government recently bought Harpoon missiles for the nation’s fleet of P-8I maritime patrol aircraft and Jaguar ground attack planes.
