Spain is looking to buy 20 Block IV Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles as well as associated equipment and services, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) reported.
The total value, if all options are exercised, could be as high as $156 million, according to DSCA.
Raytheon [RTN] is the prime contractor.
In addition to the 20 RGM-109E Block IV Surface Ship Vertical Launched Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles, Spain is requesting the sale of five Tactical Tomahawk weapon control systems hardware and software, canisters, containers, test sets and support equipment, spare and repair parts, personnel training and training equipment, operational flight test and communications equipment, technical assistance, and other related elements of logistics support, DSCA said.
The weapons will be carried on the Spanish Navy F-100 Class Frigates. The missiles will be conventionally armed, DSCA added.
The weapon’s long range and high degree of accuracy will enable Spain to take action while minimizing collateral damage and to reduce the exposure of Spanish forces to hostile fire, according to DSCA.
