Transmittal No. 16-27
United Arab Emirates - Munitions, Sustainment, and Support
WASHINGTON, Jul 19, 2016 - The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign
Military Sale to the United Arab Emirates for munitions, sustainment, and support. The estimated cost is $785
million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of
this possible sale on July 15, 2016.
The Government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) requests approval to procure seven thousand seven
hundred (7,700) GBU-10 guidance kits with seven thousand seven hundred (7,700) Mk-84/BLU-117 bombs,
five thousand nine hundred forty (5,940) GBU-12 guidance kits with five thousand nine hundred forty (5,940)
Mk-82/BLU-111 bombs, five hundred (500) GBU-31V1 guidance kits with five hundred (500) Mk-84/BLU-
117 bombs, five hundred (500) GBU-31V3 guidance kits with five hundred (500) BLU-109 bombs, and
fourteen thousand six hundred forty (14,640) FMU-152 fuzes. This sale also includes non-MDE munitions
items. The total estimated value of MDE is $740 million. The overall total estimated value is $785 million.
This proposed sale contributes to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping the
UAE remain an active member of the OPERATION INHERENT RESOLVE (OIR) coalition working to defeat
the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). These munitions will sustain the UAE’s efforts and support a
key partner that remains an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.
The proposed sale provides the UAE additional precision guided munitions to meet current and future threats.
The UAE continues to provide host-nation support of vital U.S. forces stationed at Al Dhafra Air Base and
plays a vital role in supporting U.S. regional interests. The UAE was a valued partner and active participant in
OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM (OIF), OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM (OEF), OPERATION
UNIFIED PROTECTOR (OUP), and now is a valued partner in OIR coalition operations.
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
The UAE will have no difficulties absorbing these munitions into its inventory.
The munitions will be sourced through procurement and the contractor determined during contract negotiations.
There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
There are no additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives anticipated to be stationed in the UAE as
a result of this potential sale.
There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
All questions regarding this proposed Foreign Military Sale should be directed to the State Department's Bureau of Political Military Affairs, Office of Congressional and Public Affairs, pm-cpa@state.gov.
