Those include:

(200) GBU-103 WCMD

(100) Enhased Paneway II with BLU-109

Also training missiles(JSOW, BRU-57, Control systems, technical manuals, spare parts and logistic assistance)

The corporations involved by the USA side are: Lockheed Martin Missiles, Raytheon Missiles, and Boeing Defense Systems.

It is assumed that by late January Congress will confirm the above procurements.
