Apr 08, 2014 by Greg Waldron – FG


Singapore - The US State Department has notified congress of a possible sale of 76 Raytheon AIM-9X-2 Sidewinder Block II infrared (IR) homing missiles.


The proposed $98 million Foreign Military Sales deal also includes captive air training missiles, other equipment, and training associated with the weapons, said the US Defense Security Agency in a statement.


“The ROK intends to use these AIM-9X missiles to supplement its existing missile capability and current weapon inventory,” says the DSCA.


“This sale will contribute to the Republic of Korea’s force modernization goals and enhance interoperability with U.S. forces. The ROK will use this enhanced capability to strengthen its homeland defense and deter regional threats.”

Kuwait - AIM-9X-2 SIDEWINDER Missiles

Feb 27, 2012 ASDNews Source : Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA)


The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress Feb. 24 of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Kuwait of 80 AIM-9X-2 SIDEWINDER Block II All-Up-Round Missiles and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $105 million.


The Government of Kuwait has requested a possible sale of 80 AIM-9X-2 SIDEWINDER Block II All-Up-Round Missiles, 26 CATM-9X-2 Captive Air Training Missiles, 2 CATM-9X-2 Block II Missile Guidance Units, 8 AIM-9X-2 Block II Tactical Guidance Units, 2 Dummy Air Training Missiles, containers, missile support and test equipment, provisioning, spare and repair parts, personnel training and training equipment, publications and technical data, U.S. Government and contractor technical assistance and other related logistics support. The estimated cost is $105 million.


This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been, and continues to be, an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.


The Kuwait Air Force is modernizing its fighter aircraft to better support its own air defense needs. The proposed sale of AIM-9X-2 missiles will enhance Kuwait’s interoperability with the U.S. and among other Central Command nations, making it a more valuable partner in an increasingly important area of the world.


The proposed sale of this weapon system will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
