State Dept OKs $199M Boeing Harpoon Missile Sale to Japan

MissileDefenseJapan has placed an order for Boeing (NYSE: BA) UGM-84L Harpoon Block II missiles under a $199 million foreign military sale approved by the State Department.

The proposed contract covers the procurement of 48 Harpoons, containers, equipment, spare and repair parts, technical documentation and logistics and training services, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Wednesday.
