The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has notified Congress of the possible sale of 260 Raytheon AIM-120C-7 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles to South Korea for $452 million.

The proposed deal could be conducted through the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) process and include associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support, the DSCA says.

If advanced, the transaction would provide the South Korean air force with a "contingency stock" of the weapons for its Boeing F-15K and Lockheed Martin KF-16 fighters, the agency says in a notification announcement.
