Notice. AGENCY: The Government of Bahrain has requested a possible sale of follow on support for Bahrain’s existing F–16 fleet. Support will include support equipment, communications equipment, ammunition, personal training and training equipment, spare and repair parts, publications and technical documentation, Electronic Combat International Security Assistance Program, U.S. Government and contractor technical, logistics, and engineering support services, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $150 million. The proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping improve the security of a Major Non-NATO Ally, which has been and continues to be a key security partner in the region. The follow-on support is required to maintain the operational readiness of the Royal Bahrain Air Force’s (RBAF) F– 16 fleet. The RBAF’s F–16s are aging and periodic maintenance is becoming increasingly expensive. The age of the fleet, combined with an increased operational tempo due to recent involvement in Operation Inherent Resolve has led to increased focus on maintenance and sustainment. Bahrain will have no difficulty absorbing this additional support into its armed forces. The principal contractor is unknown at this time. Contracts will be awarded when source of supply determines that defense articles and services are not available from stock or considered leadtime away. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale. Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. or contractor representatives in Bahrain. There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale. [FR Doc. 2015–20054 Filed 8–13–15; 8:45 am] the Council.
