France will receive four AE-2100D Turbo Prop engines and two Multifunctional, Information Distribution System-Low Volume Terminal Block Upgrade Two terminals to support its C-130s. 

The deal also includes N/ARC-210 radios, AN/ARC-164 radios, L-3 CSW Multiband Receiver/Transmitters, AAR-60 Missile Launch Warning Systems, MTS-A Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) system, AN/APX-119 Identification Friend or Foe Systems and Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS).

“The proposed sale will improve France’s capability to meet current and future threats by providing the necessary sustainment, services, and spare parts to support the co-managed fleet of French and German C-130 aircraft,” DSCA officials wrote in a statement.

Spain’s deal includes the AMRAAM missiles, along with one AMRAAM guidance section, missile containers and KGV-135A encryption devices.

“This proposed sale will improve Spain’s capability to meet current and future threats by increasing its stocks of AMRAAMs for its fighter aircraft fleets in support of national defense,” DSCA officials wrote.
