U.S. Military Sales to Allies: More Than $34 Billion

Navy Times reports that “the U.S. government helped facilitate the sale of $34.2 billion worth of defense equipment to allies during fiscal 2014, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced on Monday, a slight uptick from the roughly $30 billion in sales in 2013.”  

“Sales were led by a few blockbuster deals that helped some of the largest US defense firms continue to post strong numbers despite the relative slowing of defense spending by the Pentagon.”  

“Leading the list was the $11 billion purchase of 10 Patriot missile batteries by Qatar in July, a deal that included 24 Apache helicopters and 500 Javelin anti-tank missiles.”
