The US approves the sale of missiles and other military equipment to Taiwan

The State Department said the weapons would help Taiwan “face current and future threats.”

The US Government has approved the sale of $ 1 billion worth of advanced air-to-ground missiles to Taiwan while the island strengthens its defenses against China’s threats.

The State Department said it agreed to sell 135 AGM-84H SLAM-ER missiles – precision, air-launched cruise missiles, and related equipment.

The sale of six containers with MS-110 reconnaissance equipment and eleven M142 mobile light missile launchers was also approved.

With this in mind, the cost of three packages of weapons will be $ 1.8 billion.

The SLAM-ER missiles will help Taiwan “counter current and future threats as they provide capabilities for all-weather, day and night, high-precision attacks against moving and stationary targets” on land or the ocean surface, the statement said.
