The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has notified Congress of a $100m potential sale of Javelin portable anti-tank missiles systems and command launch units (CLUs) to Poland.

Under the deal, Poland has requested up to 180 Javelin missiles and 79 CLUs, as well as associated equipment, technical assistance, transportation and logistics support.

Approved by the US State Department, the sale will include basic skill trainers, battery coolant units and missile simulation rounds.

The sale package will also cover tool kits and modified two-level maintenance parts, training, US Government and contractor technical assistance, as well as logistics support.

DSCA said in a statement: “This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of a Nato ally and partner nation, which is an important force for peace, political stability, and economic progress in Eastern Europe.”

Javelin is expected to improve and strengthen the country’s long-term defence capacity. It will also help Poland fulfil its national defence needs to better defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Raytheon and Lockheed Martin’s partnership Javelin Joint Venture (JJV) will serve as the prime contractor for the programme.

Javelin is the first-ever man-portable anti-tank guided munition. The fire-and-forget, medium-range system can be operated and launched by a single person in all environments.

The system is currently in service with the US Army and the US Marine Corps, as well as defence units of Georgia, Ukraine and Estonia along with other international clients.

In October last year, the US Government approved a potential sale of 150 Javelin missiles and related equipment to Ukraine.
