The State Department has approved Lithuania’s request to purchase Stryker infantry carrier vehicles, related components and logistics support from the U.S. under a potential $599 foreign military sales agreement.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Thursday the sale covers 84 M 1126 Stryker ICV with the XM813 30-millimeter or ATK 30-millimeter cannon, 84 M2 Flex machine guns, as well as two AN/PRC-152 radios, one VIC-3 and one AN/PSN-13 DAGR for each vehicle.

Lithuania plans to use the combat vehicles to support its ground troops and operations of NATO and coalition forces, according to DSCA.

The FMS contract also covers the provision of training aids, simulators, OCONUS vehicle deprocessing support, technical manuals, spare parts, armaments, foreign service representatives and technical assistance.

DSCA said it has not yet determined the principal contractor for the contract and that it informed Congress of the potential sale Wednesday.
