Germany Requests CRI Patriot PAC-3 Missiles

By | September 11, 2006

      The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified Congress recently that Germany would like to spend as much as $298 million in a possible Foreign Military Sale to Germany of Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Cost Reduction Initiative (CRI) missiles as well as associated equipment and services.

      Germany has requested a possible sale of 72 PAC-3 CRI missiles, 12 missile round trainers, support equipment, modification kits, publications, spare and repair parts, government and contractor technical assistance and other related logistics support.

      The PAC-3 CRI missiles would provide Germany with state-of-the-art anti-tactical missiles that it would use to supplement existing fielded Patriot systems.

      The prime contractor will be Lockheed Martin [LMT] Missiles and Fire Control in Dallas, Texas. Germany has requested offsets. However the agreements are undetermined, DSCA said, and would be defined in negotiations between Germany and Lockheed Martin.
