The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency has notified Congress of a possible military sale to Chile of radars, howitzers, vehicles, weapons, ammunition and related support estimated to be worth $275m.

The sale will strengthen the foreign policy and national security of the US by modernising the Chilean Army, which has contributed significantly towards South America’s political stability and economic progress.

A new battalion will be created by Chile to integrate the new equipment into its armed forces. It is expected to further interoperability between Chile, the US and other allies.

The principal contractors involved in this programme include BAE Systems, L3 Communications, Smiths Detection and Thales Raytheon Systems Company.
