Under the missile deal, Saudi Arabia would receive 6,600 TOW 2B’s (BGM-71F-Series) and 96 fly-to-but lot validation variations.

Raytheon [RTN] is the prime contractor for that deal.

“The proposed sale of TOW 2B missiles and technical support will advance the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to develop an integrated ground defense capability.  A strong national defense and dedicated military force will assist Saudi Arabia to sustain itself in its efforts to maintain stability,” the DSCA said in a statement.

The Royal Saudi Land Forces Ordnance Corps requested logistics supply support for its fleet of M1A2 Abrams tanks, M2 Bradley Fighting Vehicles, High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles, Light Armored Vehicle, M198 Towed Howitzers.

There is no prime contractor for the above deal.

The Saudi government requested the continuation of maintenance support for the Aviation Comman deal, including repair & return services for its fleet of AH-64D/E, UH-60L, Schweizer 333 and Bell 406CS helicopters.

DynCorps International will serve as the prime contractor for the deal.
