The United States Department of Defense reports that Raytheon has been awarded a contract for the delivery of Paveway Laser Guided Bombs for the Philippines.
The exact model and quantities have not been revealed, though. I am quoting the relevant part of the article below:
Raytheon Co., Tucson, Arizona, has been awarded an $110,000,000 total-package approach, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the Paveway Family of Weapons. The contract action provides a total-package approach for Paveway-specific activities including but not limited to: studies, production, certification, integration, and sustainment. Work will be performed in Tucson, Arizona, and is expected to be completed Feb. 9, 2029. This contract involves foreign military sales (FMS) to the Philippines and countries with active cases to acquire Paveway weapon systems or have expressed interest in the Paveway Family of Weapons. FMS funds in the amount of $1,554,527 are being obligated at the time of award. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, is the contracting activity (FA8681-18-D-0001).
