The Government of Greece has requested to buy parts and services to support follow-on depot level maintenance and sustainment of F100-PW-229 engines to include spare, repair parts, and accessories; repair and return services; publications and technical documentation; U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical, and logistical services; and other related elements of logistical and program support. The overall total estimated value is $233 million.

This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security objectives of the United States by helping to improve the security of a NATO ally, which is an important partner for political stability and economic progress in Europe.

The proposed sale will improve Greece’s capability to meet current and future threats by providing greater depth of repair capability for engines on their F-16 Block 52+/52+ Advanced aircraft, sustaining their weapon system, and improving aircraft capability rates. Greece has demonstrated a continued commitment to modernizing its military and will have no difficulty absorbing this additional sustainment support into its armed forces.
