US OKs Denmark’s Request to Acquire Advanced Air-to-Air Missiles for $215M

The U.S. Department of State has approved a request from Denmark to purchase air-to-air missiles for $215.5 million.

The proposed foreign military sale involves the shipment of 84 AIM-120C-8 advanced medium-range air-to-air missiles and three AIM-120 AMRAAM guidance sections, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said.

The package includes the equipment, engineering and technical services, and training support necessary to operate and maintain the weapon system.

The government-to-government deal will enhance the security of a NATO partner and advance the U.S. government’s foreign policy goals and national security objectives in Europe, DSCA said.

As AMRAAM already exists in Denmark’s arsenal, the potential new deal will further advance the Danish Air Force’s interoperability with other NATO militaries, it added.

The U.S. government identified RTX as the principal contractor meeting the agreement’s requirements.

The system is part of the AIM-120 AMRAAM family, with the latest version boasting advanced features designed for existing battlefield requirements.
