The US Department of Defense has notified the US Congress that it intends to sell Israel 45 improved AGM-142D stand-off missiles worth $41 million. The foreign-military-sales transaction would include production-start-up support for PGSUS, the joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Israel's Rafael, for AGM-142 production in the USA. The AGM-142D air-to-ground missile is designed to attack high-value hardened targets. The weapon incorporates an improved infra-red seeker which gives the infra-red variant more capabilities. Israel and the USA both deploy the AGM-142D.
