The proposed sale will improve Japan’s capability to meet current and future threats by providing a long-range, conventional surface-to-surface missile with a significant standoff range that can neutralize growing threats. Japan will have no difficulty absorbing these articles into its armed forces.

The principal contractor will be Raytheon.
