The State Department has approved Poland for a possible $150 million foreign military sale of 800 Hellfire missiles, according to a Defense Security Cooperation Agency notice.

The sale would include 800 AGM-114R2 Hellfire missiles, four M36 Hellfire Captive Air Training Missiles, and associated equipment and contractor support.

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

The prime contractor would be Lockheed Martin.

“The proposed sale will improve Poland’s military goals of updating capability while further enhancing interoperability with the United States and other allies,” DSCA said. “Poland intends to use these defense articles and services to modernize its armed forces and expand its capability to strengthen its homeland defense and deter regional threats.”
