The US Defense Security Cooperation agency has notified congress about a possible sale of 17 Raytheon AIM-120C7 AMRAAM missiles to Japan.

The deal, which will be conducted under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) mechanism, is valued at $33 million, says the DSCA.

In addition to the 17 missiles, the package includes two captive air training missiles, test and support equipment, spare parts, documentation, and other elements.

The DSCA adds that Japan already uses an earlier variant of the AMRAAM, the AIM-120C5.
