The State Department has approved a pair of proposed agreements worth a combined $428 million to sell non-standard and standard military aircraft spare parts to the government of Taiwan.
Taiwan’s economic and cultural representative office asked to procure accessories, spare parts and consumables for F-16, C-130 and other U.S.-manufactured aircraft and components, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Tuesday.
The possible FMS transaction also includes aircraft part repair and replacement support services.
DSCA noted that there are no principal contractors involved in the proposed sale.
The Taiwanese government is procuring the equipment and services for military aircraft sustainment efforts that support defensive and transport capabilities.
