The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified Congress last week of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the United Arab Emirates of 500 AGM-114R3 HELLFIRE missiles and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $65 million.

The Government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has requested a possible sale 500 AGM-114R3 HELLFIRE II missiles, containers, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, repair and return support, training equipment and personnel training, U.S. Government and contractor logistics, Quality Assurance Team support services, engineering and technical support, and other related elements of program support. The estimated cost is $65 million.

UAE intends to use these defense articles and services to modernize its armed forces and expand its existing Army architecture to counter threats posed by potential attack. This proposed sale will also contribute to the UAE military's goal of updating its capability while further enhancing its interoperability with the U.S. and other allies. This capability will serve to deter potential attacks against strategic targets across the UAE, to include infrastructure and resources vital to the security of the U.S.
