The State Department has approved a possible FMS to Norway of AIM-120C-8 Air-to-Air Missiles and related equipment for an estimated cost of $1.94 billion. The Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the required certification, notifying Congress of this possible sale today. Norway has requested to buy 300 AIM-120C-8 Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM) and 20 AIM-120C-8 AMRAAM guidance sections, which will cost an estimated $1.94 billion.
