The State Department on Tuesday approved the possible sale of AIM-120C-7 advanced air-to-air missiles, along with artillery systems, in a move it says will support the NATO ally’s security in Eastern Europe. The estimated $250 million foreign military sale includes up to 150 AIM-120C Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles as well as support and test equipment, and training and logistics support. The missiles would be used on Poland’s F-16s and “enhances Poland’s ability to provide for its own territorial defense and support coalition operations,” according to a Defense Security Cooperation Agency release. DSCA also announced an accompanying possible $250 million sale of a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, including launch systems, rockets, other equipment, and training support. —Brian Everstine
