    Notice on the possible sale of Saudi Arabia's missile defense system THAAD

    The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) on October 6, 2017 sent a notice to the US Congress about the possible sale of Saudi Arabia through the inter-governmental military sales of the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) of seven batteries of the US missile defense system THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense). The sale is authorized by the US Department of State. The estimated cost of delivery is estimated at $ 15 billion.

    According to the notification, 44 mobile THAAD launchers, THAAD 360 anti-missiles, THAAD command posts, seven AN / TPY-2 radars, and various other related assets (including 43 trucks) will be included in the proposed delivery. The cost of delivery also includes technical support, training of personnel, construction of infrastructure, payment for activities in Saudi Arabia of the required number of representatives of the American industry (111 people) and the US armed forces (18 people).

    The general contractors for the supply will be the corporations Lockheed Martin and Raytheon.

    Recall that, as reported, a preliminary agreement on the purchase of Saudi Arabia's seven batteries of the THAAD system (the cost of which was tentatively estimated at 13.5 billion dollars) was signed on May 20, 2017 in Riyadh during the official visit to Saudi Arabia by the President of the United States of America Donald Trump. The date of deliveries of THAAD systems to Saudi Arabia was called 2023-2026.

    In the event of a firm intergovernmental agreement, Saudi Arabia will become the third foreign customer of THAAD after the UAE and Oman.
