The Government of Lebanon has requested to buy up to 300 M1152 High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) (2 purchases of one hundred fifty (150) each). Also included are spare and repair parts, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistical and program support. The total estimated cost is $55.5 million.

The proposed sale will provide sufficient modern transport vehicles to improve Lebanon’s capability to meet current and future threats by improving its ability to move troops and supplies around the country to counter violent extremist organizations and to secure its border. Lebanon currently operates over 1,000 HMMWVs of various variants.

The principal contractor will be American General, South Bend, Indiana. Implementation of this proposed sale will require the assignment of two U.S. contractor representatives to Lebanon for a duration of up to thirteen weeks to conduct HMMWV operator and maintenance training.
