The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will acquire 280 additional Raytheon AIM-120C Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles (AMRAAM). The sale of the advanced air-to-air missiles (AAM) was cleared by the U.S State Department this month.

The new AIM-120C-7/C-8 AMRAAMs will arm the Royal Saudi Air Force’s (RSAF) Eurofighter Typhoon and Boeing F-15C/D, F-15S, and F-I5SA aircraft and further strengthen the interoperability between the USA and Saudi Arabia. The deal when formally concluded will be worth an US$650 million for the missiles and related equipment. Saudi Arabia is slated to receive 280 AIM-120C-7/C-8 AMRAAMs and 596 LAU-128 missile rail launchers.

The RSAF will increase its stocks of medium-range missiles for its fighter aircraft fleet, with these new missiles allowing it to cater for current and future threats for its national defense.
