JAVELIN Anti-tank Missile Systems for Oman

Category: Defence Industry


The Government of Oman has requested the United States of a sale of 250 JAVELIN missile rounds and 30 JAVELIN command launch units, simulators, trainers, support equipment, spare and repair parts, publications and technical data, personnel training and equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and logistics personnel services, a Quality Assurance Team, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $48 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.

The desert warfare missions of Oman's infantry and light armored forces require the protection afforded by the capabilities of the JAVELIN system. JAVELIN will provide the forces with a credible anti-armor defense that is critical to successful operations. The proposed sale of JAVELIN is consistent with Oman's ongoing efforts to modernize its armed forces and the presence of the weapon in the land forces' inventory will provide yet another inroad for enhancing interoperability between the U.S. and Omani military forces.

The prime contractor will be Raytheon/Lockheed-Martin JAVELIN Joint Venture in Orlando, Florida.
