The State Department approved a possible Foreign Military Sale to Republic of Korea (ROK) of (120) AIM-120C-7/C-8 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) with support for an estimated cost of $253 million. The Defence Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale.

ROK has requested to buy 120 AMRAAM. Also included are containers; weapon support and support equipment; spare and repair parts; U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistics support services; and other related elements of logistical and program support. The total estimated program cost is $253 million.

This proposed sale will improve the ROK capability to meet current and future threats by increasing its stocks of medium-range missiles for its F-15K, KF-16, and F-35 fleets for its national defence.
