Kuwait is looking to spend $328 million for a possible sale of 2,106 TOW-2A Radio Frequency missiles, as well as associated equipment and services, according to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA).
Along with the 2,106 TOW-2A Radio Frequency missiles, Kuwait is seeking 21 Buy-to-Fly missiles, 1,404 TOW-2B Radio Frequency missiles, 14 Buy-to-Fly missiles, containers, spare and repair parts, supply support, publications and technical data, U.S. Government and contractor technical and logistics personnel services, and other related elements of program support, DSCA reported.
The prime contractor will be Raytheon [RTN].
The proposed sale of additional TOW-2 missiles will fill an urgent requirement to enhance the reliability of Kuwait’s TOW missile stock as its stocks of existing TOW missiles are nearing the end of their shelf life. The additional Buy-to-Fly missiles will be purchased for test purposes. Kuwait, which already has TOW-2 missiles in its inventory, will have no difficulty absorbing these additional missiles, DSCA said.
