The State Department approved a potential $55 million Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to Estonia for Javelin missiles and associated parts, equipment, training, and logistical support.

The principle contractor would be Javelin Joint Venture, a partnership between Raytheon [RTN] and Lockheed Martin [LMT].

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the certification notifying Congress of the possible FMS on Oct. 6.

Estonia’s request includes 250 javelin Guided Missiles, 120 Command Launch Units (CLU) with Integrated Day/Thermal Sight, 102 Battery coolant Units, 16 Enhanced Performance basic Skills Trainers (EPBST), 102 Missile Simulation Rounds (MSR), spare and repair parts, rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries, battery chargers and dischargers, support equipment, and publications and technical data.

The sale would also include personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor representative engineering, technical and logistical support service and other related logistics support.

The potential FMS “will improve Estonia’s capability to meet current and future threats and provide greater security for its critical infrastructure,” DSCA said in a statement. It also highlighted that the sale would contribute to the national security of the United States by helping a NATO ally.
