State Dept Clears Potential $4B Patriot Missile Sale to Romania

The State Department has approved Romania’s request to procure Patriot air defense systems, support and equipment under a potential $3.9 billion foreign military sales deal.

Romania requested seven Patriot Configuration-3+ modernized fire units comprised of seven AN/MPQ-65 radar sets, seven AN/MSQ-132 engagement control stations, 13 antenna mast groups, 28 M903 launching stations, 56 Patriot MIM-104E Guidance Enhanced Missile-TBM missiles, 168 Patriot Advanced Capabilty-3 missile segment enhancement missiles and 7 Electrical Power Plants III, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Tuesday.

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) will serve as prime contractors on the proposed FMS transaction, which will require the deployment of approximately 30 U.S. government and 40 contractor representatives to Romania.

The deal also covers the provision of communications, tools, test and support equipment; publications and technical documentation; training equipment; and U.S. government and contractor technical, engineering and logistics support services.

DSCA said Romania will use the Patriot missile systems for homeland defense efforts and to support NATO’s defense goals.
