Peru - Refurbishment of Two C-130E Aircraft

Peru - Refurbishment of Two C-130E Aircraft

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress today of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Peru for the modification and refurbishment of two C-130E aircraft and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $74 million.

The Government of Peru has requested a possible sale for the modification and refurbishment of two C-130E aircraft being provided as Excess Defense Articles (grant EDA notification submitted separately) to include: aircraft ferry, spare and repair parts, support equipment, personnel training and training equipment, publications and technical data, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $74 million.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been, and continues to be, a close partner in countering illicit drug trafficking, a force for economic progress in South America, and a proponent of hemispheric cooperation.

This proposed sale will enable the Peruvian Air Force to modernize its aging aircraft and enhance its capacity to support humanitarian efforts in the region. Peru occupies a strategic location in South America, and the sale of refurbishment support for its EDA grant C-130 aircraft will improve Peru’s efforts in conducting maritime interdiction operations, improve its ability to execute counter-narcotics and counterterrorism capabilities, and ensure Peru’s overall ability to maintain the integrity of its borders. Additionally, this transfer will enhance the Peruvian Military’s ability to support to Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HA/DR) efforts. Peru, which already has C-130 and L-100 aircraft in its inventory, will have no difficulty absorbing these additional aircraft into its armed forces.

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

The prime contractor for the refurbishment is undetermined at this time. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.
Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government and contractor representatives to Peru.

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

This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
