The Defense Security and Cooperation Agency (DSCA) notified the US Congress of a
possible Foreign Military Sale (FMS) to the Czech Republic of F-16A/B Block
10/15 aircraft as well as associated equipment and services.
The Government of Czech Republic has requested a possible sale of 12 F-16A Block
15 Air Defense Fighter Aircraft, 2 F-16B Block 10 Operational Capabilities
Upgrade (OCU) aircraft, 2 F-16A OCU aircraft to
get spare and repair parts (cannibalization), 16 Pratt and Whitney F100-PW-220
engines including 2 spare engines, and 35 LAU-129 launchers.
In addition, this possible FMS could include 20 AIM-120C AMRAAM missiles, 4,000
rounds of 20mm cannon ammunition, and support equipment and services to ensure
F-16s full operability during 10 years.
The total estimated cost with all options included is $650 million.
The Czech Air Force would employ these F-16A/B aircraft to replace aging
soviet-made Mig-21s while achieving NATO interoperability.
