The Government of Iraq has requested a possible sale of 44,608 M107 155mm High Explosive Projectiles and 9,328 M485A2 155mm Illumination projectiles; also included are, M231 Propelling charges, M232A1 155mm Modular Artillery Charge System Propelling charges, M739 Fuzes, M762A1 Electronic Time Fuzes, M82 Percussion primers, M767A1 Electronic Time Fuzes, 20-foot Intermodal Containers for transporting ammunition, publications and technical data, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, logistics, and technical support services, and other related elements of logistics support.

The proposed sale will help Iraq's efforts to develop an integrated ground defense capability, a strong national defense, and dedicated military force. As the drawdown of coalition forces continues, the Iraqi military continues to develop a force capable of assuming the lead in providing for the security of the Iraqi people.
