By Defence Industry Europe

The U.S. Department of State has approved a sale of AIM-120C-8 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles to Denmark as part of the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced on June 7. The AMRAAM missiles are manufactured by the American defense industry giant RTX.


According to the DSCA statement, the future contract for AMRAAM missiles could reach up to USD 215.5 million. This price includes 85 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles and three AMRAAM guidance sections. Additionally, Denmark plans to procure related equipment, including spare AMRAAM control sections, containers and support equipment, munitions support, spare parts, consumables, accessories, repair and return support, weapons software, transportation support, classified publications and technical documentation, studies and surveys, and U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistics support services.

“The proposed sale will improve Denmark’s capability to meet current and future threats by ensuring it has modern, capable air-to-air munitions. The sale will further advance the already high level of Danish Air Force interoperability with U.S. Joint Forces and other regional and NATO forces. Denmark already has AMRAAM in its inventory and will have no difficulty absorbing these articles into its armed forces,” DSCA said in a press release.
