    The official, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said the arms package could end up surpassing more than $300 billion over a decade to help Saudi Arabia boost its defensive capabilities while still maintaining U.S. ally Israel's qualitative military edge over its neighbors.

    US plans to supply Nigeria with 12 Super Tucano

    The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) on August 2, 2017, sent a notice to the US Congress about the planned forthcoming sale of Nigeria through the inter-governmental foreign military sales of Foreign Military Sales (FMS) 12 turboprop light attack aircraft (training aircraft) Embraer A-29 (EMB-314) Super Tucano. The notice states that the US State Department has already given permission for this sale.

    The estimated cost of delivery will be $ 593 million, including the cost of armament (indigestible), ground equipment, spare parts, technical support and training. The Sierra Nevada Corporation Centennial is the general contractor for the supply, so that the delivery of the Super Tucano will be carried out in the same way as the supply of these aircraft to Afghanistan and Lebanon - with their assembling from car kits at Sierra Nevada and Embraer joint venture in Jacksonville (state Florida).

    The Trump administration has decided to unfreeze $195 million (147.97 million pounds) in military aid to Egypt which it had previously withheld because of concerns over Egypt’s human rights record, a U.S. State Department official said on Wednesday.

    The decision to allow Cairo to use the previously blocked funds is intended to recognise “steps Egypt has taken over the last year in response to specific U.S. concerns” and in the spirit of strengthening the partnership with Egypt, the official said.

    What a load of shit.

    They could give a flying fuck about Egypts human rights record...

    Military aide is a sham... it is a loan that can only be used to buy US weapons... it is a loan to the US MIC.

    US stopped supplying Pakistan with AH-1Z combat helicopters

    As the AirForces Monthly magazine reported, the United States refused to transfer to Pakistan 12 Bell AH-1Z Viper helicopters already manufactured for Pakistan Army aviation. Although the transfer of helicopters to the previously agreed schedule by the Pakistani side was expected in August 2018, now all 12 AH-1Z helicopters built for Pakistan have been transferred for temporary storage at the 309th US Air Force group (309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group - AMARG) at a known storage base Davis-Montand (Arizona).

    This is due to the decision of the US government adopted in January 2018 to stop military assistance to Pakistan for political reasons - primarily because of the insufficiently active, according to the Americans, actions by the Pakistani side against the Taliban and radical Islamist groups in the border areas with Afghanistan. In September 2018, the US Department of Defense confirmed that $ 300 million intended for military assistance to Pakistan in the 2018 fiscal year were frozen and will now be redirected to other purposes. The delivery of AN-1Z helicopters to Pakistan was to be financed precisely at the expense of American military aid.

    From the side of bmpd, we recall that Pakistan became the first actual foreign customer of AH-1Z combat helicopters, which are the last derivation of the famous family of American combat helicopters Bell AH-1 Cobra. In April 2015, a notification was issued to the United States Department of Defense Defense Cooperation Agency (DSCA) to the United States Congress about the planned upcoming delivery of Pakistan through intergovernmental foreign military sales Foreign Military Sales (FMS) 15 helicopters AH-1Z AGM-114R Hellfire II missiles, with a total planned value of $ 952 million. However, in fact, the relevant agreements were concluded to supply Pakistan with only 12 AH-1Z helicopters and, at a lower cost, an agreement to supply the first three helicopters etov was concluded in August 2015 and the agreement for the supply of a further nine - in April 2016, with the delivery of helicopters AH-1Z Pakistan was supposed to be carried out in respect of funding under the American military aid. Helicopters for Pakistan were manufactured at the Bell plant in Amarillo (Texas) from August 2017 to mid-2018 (Pakistani board numbers from 786-061 to 786-072), but as a result, Pakistan was not transferred.

    It should be noted that in April 2018, DSCA was notified about the planned sale of 12 AH-1Z helicopters through FMS to Bahrain, with an estimated cost of $ 911.4 million. It is possible that this is a resale of helicopters made for Pakistan to Bahrain.

    Military speaking not that much. Stingers are useless against what china will use to attack Taiwan i.e ballistic and cruise missile. Abrams will be destroyed by bombers from high altitude while the f-16 will be taken out by the ballistic missiles barrage the first day.

    If taiwan invested in its own hardware it would at least stimulate their economy.

    Notifications of the possible sale to the Philippines of American combat helicopters AH-1Z and AN-64E


    On April 30, 2020, the US Department of Defense Agency for Defense Cooperation (DSCA) sent notifications (here and here) to the U.S. Congress about the possible upcoming sale of six combat helicopters to the Philippines through the American program of intergovernmental foreign military sales (FMS) of Foreign Military Sales (FMS) Two possible types are Bell AH-1Z Viper or Boeing AH-64E Apache Guardian.

    The notification of the possible sale to the Philippines of six Bell AH-1Z Viper combat helicopters provides for the supply to them of only a small amount of weapons for combat training tasks - six AGM-114 Hellfire II guided missiles, 26 caliber 70 Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) missiles mm and 5000 cannon semi-armor-piercing shells of 20 mm caliber. As a result, the total cost of the estimated delivery is estimated at $ 450 million.

    In contrast, the announcement of the possible sale to the Philippines of six Boeing AH-64E Apache Guardian combat helicopters gives the total cost of the estimated delivery of $ 1.5 billion, since it includes a significant amount of aviation weapons - 200 AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, 300 APKWS missiles and 1700 guidance sets for the conversion of 70 mm unguided missiles into APKWS, 5000 unguided 70 mm caliber rockets, 200 FIM-92H Stinger air-to-air missiles, 80 thousand 30 mm cannon shells, as well as a significant number of various types of training ammunition. Helicopters must be equipped with Longbow radar.

    It should be noted that notifications by DSCA to the U.S. Congress of a potential FMS sale are required by U.S. law and do not mean that agreements will be necessarily concluded, although they do indicate that the U.S. Department of Defense received an official request for a possible supply from the relevant national government.

    Recall that the government of the Philippines in the past few years plans to purchase combat helicopters. In 2019, Jordan donated two old American Bell AH-1S Cobra combat helicopters delivered to the Philippines in November to the Philippines from its Air Force. At the end of 2018, it was announced that the Air Force Phillippin Technical Working Group (TWG) recommended the purchase of eight Turkish Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) T129 ATAK combat helicopters. However, it can be assumed that due to the difficulties encountered by the Turkish side in connection with the supply of T129 ATAK helicopters to Pakistan under the 2018 contract (until now, the United States has refused to grant Turkey an export license for the supply of American LHTEC CTS800-4AT turbojet engines installed in T129 to Pakistan ), The Philippines decided to refocus on the acquisition of new combat helicopters in the United States.

    Wonder if this will actually last 10 years

    The biggest defense and aerospace company in the world, Lockheed Martin, now plans to ‘commoditize’ its F-16 fighter jets to aid in the Foreign Military Sales and simplify the acquisition process.

    Last month, the U.S. government awarded the company with a whopping $62-billion contract for indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), fixed-price-incentive contract for the production of F-16 Foreign Military Sale (FMS) aircraft over the next ten years.

    The F-16 is one of the most widely produced fighter jets in the world comprising 16% of the global fleet- more than double compared to its competitor, the Russian Su-27/30 and variants.

    U.S. Fiscal 2020 Defense Export Totals


    The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) released its official summary of U.S. defense exports in fiscal 2020 (ended September 30, 2020 ) on December 4, 2020 . Another Lockheed Martin F-35I Lightning II fighter jets delivered to Israel through the US Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program and US military aid.

    DSCA's FY2020 agreements and clearances through the U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program totaled $ 50.78 billion, according to a press release, which includes $ 44.79 billion. in the form of direct intergovernmental agreements with foreign countries through the FMS, $ 3.3 billion agreements in the line of direct financing of foreign armies in the form of military aid (Foreign Military Financing - FMF) and $ 2.69 billion agreements to strengthen the military capabilities of partners ( Building Partner Capacity - BMC).

    At the same time, it was reported that in the 2020 financial year, the US Department of State issued licenses for the export of defense property directly to American manufacturing companies through direct commercial sales Direct Commercial Sales (DCS) for a total of $ 124.3 billion.

    Thus, the total potential volume of US defense exports in 2020 fiscal year as the sum of the notification of FMS lines and DCS line licenses declared of $ 175.08 billion, which is 2.8% more than in the 2019 fiscal year when it declared amounted to $ 170.09 billion.

    Αccording to the attached DSCA statistical data, the largest volume of FMS agreements and notifications in FY2020 by country were:

    Taiwan - $ 11.777 billion
    Poland - to $ 4.71 billion

    Morocco - $ 4.539 billion
    UAE - $ 3.568 billion
    India - $ 3.364 billion
    South Korea - $ 2.124 billion
    Japan - $ 1.983 billion
    Australia - $ 1.718 billion
    Singapore - $ 1.292 billion
    Saudi Arabia - $ 1.175 billion

    Afghanistan - $ 1.071 billion
    Israel - $ 1.058 billion


    It can also be noted that agreements and notifications under the FMS in the 2020 financial year are indicated with Ukraine for a record amount of $ 510.599 million for this country.

    On the part of bmpd, we would like to point out that these figures should not be taken as the actual volume of US defense exports, either for actual deliveries or for new contracts.

    The US Department of State's DCS Licensing Summary is an aggregated amount of licenses for a given company, for long-term supply, or optional contracting and supply.

    As for the DSCA aggregate data for the FMS, it is mainly obtained by summarizing the official notices issued by DSCA for the fiscal year about the planned agreements under this line. The DSCA notifications themselves are not contracts at all and do not mean that the contract will be concluded. In fact, DSCA in its annual reports does not correctly calculate the figures for the volumes of agreements concluded under the FMS on the basis of prepared preliminary agreements (Letters of Offer and Acceptance, LOA), and not directly signed contracts, which systematically leads to serious overestimations of the total amounts. In addition, in a number of cases, DSCA indicates in its reporting supplies subsequently sold through DCS (as was the case with the acquisition of F-15K fighters from Boeing by South Korea). Characteristically

    So, as a typical picture, in the 2016 financial year, DSCA announced the conclusion of agreements under the FMS (and military construction FMCS) in the amount of $ 27.618 billion, and licenses under the DCS (and DCSS technology transfers) for $ 49.845 billion - a total of 77.463 billion dollars.According to the DSCA itself, the actual deliveries of military equipment from the United States abroad in the 2016 financial year amounted to $ 30.598 billion (excluding the distribution of surplus military equipment through the EDA) - including $ 17.264 billion through the FMS ( and FMCS), and $ 9.636 billion in various lines of commercial sales, and another $ 3.698 billion in supplies under other programs (mainly special programs for military supplies to Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as supplies to other states under programs to assist in the fight against terrorism and illegal drug trafficking).

    According to our estimates, the total volume of actual deliveries of US military equipment abroad in the 2020 financial year was in the region of $ 45-50 billion, which, however, demonstrates the leading position of the United States in the global defense market.

    The data published by DSCA on the cost parameters of special property and services that are the subject of licenses issued and concluded agreements and contracts for the supply of US military products abroad under the FMS, FMCS and DCS programs should be considered rather as an aggregated portfolio of contracts for US military-technical cooperation with foreign states.
