The Boeing-made Poseidon aircraft, which are used for hunting submarines and conducting maritime reconnaissance, are worth up to $2.10 billion, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said. The Patriot anti-missile systems are to defend against ballistic missiles and will cost $501 million, it said.
DSCA said the proposed sales, which were notified to Congress on Thursday, will help South Korea improve its missile defense capability and support U.S. national security objectives by enhancing Seoul’s naval capabilities.
