WASHINGTON - The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Thailand for RGM-84L Harpoon Block II Surface Launched Missiles.  The estimated cost is $24.9 million.  The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on August 9, 2017.

The Government of Thailand has requested the possible sale of up to five (5) RGM-84L Harpoon Block II Surface Launched Missiles and one (1) RTM-84L Harpoon Block II Exercise Missile. Also included are containers, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor representatives technical assistance, engineering and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $24.9 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to strengthen the U.S.-Thai strategic relationship and to improve the security of an important partner.

The proposed sale will provide enhanced capabilities in effective defense of critical sea lines. Thailand intends to use the missiles on its DW3000 Class Frigate. The proposed sale of the Harpoon Block II missiles and support will increase the Royal Thai Navy’s maritime partnership potential. Thailand has purchased Harpoon missiles previously and will have no difficulty absorbing these missiles into its armed forces.

The proposed sale will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

The principal contractor will be the Boeing Company, St. Louis, MO. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

  6. Indonesia and Malaysia are good friends. All ASIAN country have a good relationship, understanding and cooperation which we have seen in a recent ministerial meeting in Philippine. So no need to argue. We only have one enemy here the one who always get jealous and underestimating other country. You already know guys who I am referring of.

    1. Thai forces is intelligent marky, so no need for you to dictate what is appropriate hardware to be use. OK OK?

      Hapus
    2. South Korean CSTAR missile has much more improved guidance systems and range comparable to Harpoons

      Hapus
    3. Why are you such a nag and pesky human marky? Are you sure your a hard headed kind of Phinoy??

      Hapus
    4. Cstar missile is also planned for the Philippine navy new frigates. Thailand may buy Sokor missiles in addition to Harpoons. Nice idea isnt it ?

      Hapus
    5. Do you believe in idiotism?

      Hapus
    6. Marky is just asking a question not insulting anyone. He wants to know.

      Hapus
    7. Harpoon missiles are more recognised compared to the korea C star 700. Besides this is a block 2 which is an enhancement. Both are similar just that the koreans can travel faster. However there is no mention of all weather capable which the harpoon can deliver in all weather. Compatability might be an issue as well.

      Hapus
    8. 5 harpoons minus 1 training/non firing unit not enough for an 8 launcher of the new frigates. Maybe for evaluation? Or if they buy additional harpoons in the future?

      Hapus
    9. Chill out Lem...It's a good discussion...
