The State Department has approved a $300 million foreign military sale of launcher technology and support services for an anti-tank missile system, manufactured by a partnership between Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), to the British government.

The U.K. asked to procure 513 Javelin Lightweight Command Launch Units for use in that country’s homeland defense and regional deterrence efforts, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Monday.

DSCA added the possible sale includes basic skills and outdoor trainer equipment, vehicle launcher electronics.

The Javelin Joint Venture equipped its system with the LWCLU to help a gunner to recognize targets and send signals to the missile.

The contractor would provide system integration and check out, technical assistance and life cycle support to the U.K. customer as part of the sale.
