The Government of Iraq has requested a Foreign Military Sales Order II (FMSO II) to provide funds for blanket order requisitions, under a Cooperative Logistics Supply Agreement (CLSSA) for spare parts to support M1A1 Battle Tanks, M1070 Heavy Equipment Tactical Trucks, M88A1/2 Tank Recovery Vehicles, M113 Vehicles, M198 Towed Howitzers, M109A5 Self Propelled Howitzers, High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV), Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Trucks (HEMTT), heavy and light machine guns, common repair sets, and additional authorized items with associated equipment and services. The estimated cost is $600 million.

Iraq requires continuing procurement and repair of spare parts through the U.S. Government’s FMSO II program in order to maintain its military fleets of tanks, vehicles, and other associated equipment. The spare parts and repair sets to be procured under this proposed sale are critical for maintaining these ground transportation vehicles in operational condition.
