The State Department has approved a possible $2.35 billion foreign military sale of Tomahawk missiles to Japan, according to an announcement from the Defense Security Cooperation Agency.

Japan seeks to purchase up to 200 Tomahawk Block IV All Up Rounds (AURs) (RGM-109E); up to 200 Tomahawk Block V AURs (RGM-109E); and 14 Tactical Tomahawk Weapon Control Systems (TTWCS), DSCA said.

The principal contractor will be Raytheon in Tucson, AZ.

“This proposed sale will support the foreign policy goals and national security objectives of the United States by improving the security of a major ally that is a force for political stability and economic progress in the Indo-Pacific region,” DSCA said.
