The total estimated program cost is $78.032 million. This proposed sale will support the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a partner in South America. Argentina’s existing P-3B patrol aircraft have reached the end of their operational service life.

It is vital to the U.S. national interest to assist Argentina in developing and maintaining a strong and ready self-defense maritime patrol aircraft capability. Argentina will have no difficulty absorbing these aircraft into its armed forces. The proposed sale of this equipment will not alter the basic military balance in the region.
