U.S. State Dept OKs two possible military sales to Taiwan -Pentagon

The Pentagon announced on Thursday that the U.S. State Department has given approval for two separate deals with Taiwan. These deals involve the potential sale of ammunition and logistics supply support, with a combined value of up to $440 million. According to the Pentagon, Taiwan has requested the purchase of various types of ammunition, including high explosive incendiary-tracer rounds, multi-purpose rounds, and training rounds. The estimated cost for this ammunition purchase is $332.2 million. The principal contractors for these deals will be Alliant Techsystems Operations and General Dynamics (GD.N). Additionally, Taiwan has also requested a Blanket Order Cooperative Logistics Supply Support Arrangement, which is estimated to cost $108 million. This logistics arrangement will provide support for the purchase of spare and repair parts for wheeled vehicles, weapons, and other related elements. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency of the Pentagon has notified Congress about both of these potential sales.
