Turkey seeks 117 missiles from US

Turkey has ordered 117 air-to-air Sidewinder missiles from the US amid a spiraling conflict in Syria, the Defense Department’s Security Cooperation Agency said Monday.

The agency has issued a notice for the US Congress saying the order worth $140 million included Sidewinder missiles and associated equipment. The Congress has about a fortnight to cancel the deal, else the agency will be given the green light to go on with the sale.

The order package allegedly consists of 117 AIM-9X-2 Sidewinder Block-II missiles, 6 AIM-9X-2 Block II tactical guidance units, 6 dummy air training missiles, 130 LAU-129 Launchers, containers, missile support and test equipment, provisioning, spare and repair parts, as well as personnel training equipment.
