WASHINGTON, April 29, 2011 – The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress Monday of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Greece of spare parts and services for its F-16 aircraft, as well as associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $100 million.
The Government of Greece requests spare parts and services for F100-PW-229 engines for Hellenic Air Force F-16 aircraft, to include: Inlet/Fan Modules, Core Engine Modules, Rear Compressor Drive Turbines, Fan Drive Turbine Modules, Augmentor Duct and Nozzle Modules, and Gearbox Modules. In addition, the proposed sale will include support equipment, publications and technical documentation, U.S. Government and contractor technical, engineering, logistics support services, and other related elements of program support. The estimated cost is $100 million.
This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a NATO ally.
The uninterrupted supply of spare parts and support will ensure the Hellenic Air Force keeps its aircraft fleet at the highest state of readiness.
The proposed sale of this equipment will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
The proposed sale will involve many contractors providing similar items to the U.S. armed forces. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Greece.
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.
