The State Department has approved a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Finland of F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft with air-to-air missiles and air-to-ground precision guided munitions and related equipment for an estimated cost of $12.5 billion.

– 64 F-35A fighters

-50 F / A-18EF Super Hornet Fighters

– 14 EA-18G Advanced Strike Fighters

-500 Small II Bombs
