Jordan to Buy M31 Unitary GMLRS Rocket Pods

 

March 9th, 2015 By US Defense Security Cooperation Agency

 

The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Jordan for M31 Unitary Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (GMLRS) Rocket Pods and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $192 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on March 4, 2015.

 

The Government of Jordan has requested a possible sale of 72 M31 Unitary Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (GMLRS) Rocket Pods (6 rockets per pod for a total of 432), support equipment, spare and repair parts, publications and technical data, personnel training and equipment, systems integration support, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and logistics personnel services, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $192 million.

 

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the U.S. by helping to improve the security of a partner country that has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East. It is vital to the U.S. national interest that Jordan develops and maintains a strong and ready self-defense capability. This proposed sale is consistent with the U.S. regional objectives and will not impact the regional stability in the Middle East.

 

The proposed sale of GMLRS will improve Jordan’s capability to meet current and future threats on its borders and provide greater security for its economic infrastructure. The GMLRS will provide the Royal Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) a long-range precision artillery support capability that will significantly improve U.S.-JAF interoperability and provide for the defense of vital installations. Jordan will have no difficulty absorbing these additional systems into its armed forces.

 

The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

 

The principal contractor will be Lockheed Martin Missile and Fire Control in Dallas, Texas. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

 

Implementation of this sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Jordan.

 

There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.

 

This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.

Le lance-roquette unitaire (LRU) est le tout nouveau système d'arme de l'artillerie française. La phase d'essai et le premier tir de munition de guerre sur l'île du Levant fin 2013 ont été supervisés par direction générale de l'armement (DGA). Les ultimes vérifications ont eu lieu en Suède, au camp de Vidsel, en juin dernier, au cours d'une évaluation technico-opérationnelle effectuée par la section technique de l'armée de Terre (STAT), renforcée par une équipe du 1er Régiment d’Artillerie.
