The U.S. State Department cleared more than USD 4.2 billion worth of potential weapons sales for Japan, South Korea, Hungary, Lithuania and Denmark, defencenews.com reports. Hungary is seeking to spend an estimated USD 500 million on 180 AIM-120C-7 advanced medium-range air-to-air missiles. The prime contractor will be Raytheon. The weapons will be used to support Hungary’s fleet of Gripen fighter jets. The sales, announced on the Defense Security Cooperation Agency website, would bring total foreign military sales cases cleared by the State Department to USD 51.9 billion. The deals must first be cleared by Congress before entering contract negotiations, during which time quantities and dollar figures may change, according to the report.
