POLICY JUSTIFICATION

Brunei—C-130J Aircraft

The Government of Brunei has requested a sale of 1 C-130J aircraft, 6 AE2100D3 turboprop engines (4 installed and 2 spares), Government Furnished Equipment, communication equipment, spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistical and program support. The estimated cost is $343 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to strengthen the U.S.-Brunei relationship, which has been a force for regional stability and economic progress in Southeast Asia.

This proposed sale of a C-130J to Brunei will provide a critical capability to assist in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief missions. The aircraft will enable Brunei to provide aid and assistance in greater capacities to regional allies and partners in need. The aircraft will also provide the ability to execute maritime patrol missions and contribute to search and rescue missions in the region. Brunei should have no difficulty absorbing this aircraft into its inventory.

The proposed sale of this aircraft and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

The principal contractor will be Lockheed Martin-Aerospace in Marietta, Georgia. There are no known offset agreements in connection with this potential sale.

Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Brunei.

There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.
