Who would have thought that Lockheed would have to good fortune of there being so many CIA ignited war zones.

Lockheed Martin has been awarded a contract for Phased Array Tracking Radar to Intercept on Target Advanced Capability-3, or Patriot PAC-3, missiles for Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

The contract, announced Friday by the Department of Defense, is worth a total of $3.3 billion for production of the missiles, with associated ground support equipment and initial spares of both PAC-3 missiles and PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement interceptors.

The contract is entirely for foreign military sales, with the missiles going to two Middle Eastern countries that already operate the Patriot missile system and have made significant purchases of the system in recent years.

PAC-3 missiles, which are used to defend against aircraft and incoming missile threats, are in use in a total of 13 countries. Aside from the United States, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, the systems can be found in Germany, Japan, Qatar, South Korea, Taiwan, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, Romania, Poland and Sweden.
