LM announces Saudi PAC-3 order

Jeremy Binnie, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
15 October 2015
Saudi Arabia has signed an agreement with the US government to purchase 320 more Patriot PAC-3 surface-to-air missiles, Joe Garland, the vice president of business development for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control told Reuters on 14 October.

Garland said Saudi Arabia would probably order another 280 PAC-3 missiles in 2017 and is looking to accelerate its purchase of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system, which will give the kingdom another layer of ballistic missile defence.

Saudi Arabia's plan to acquire PAC-3s for its existing Patriot systems was announced by the US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) in October 2014, when it notified Congress that the kingdom had requested modification kits for 36 of its launchers and 202 missiles.
