  • Description

    The United States Tuesday (9 February) agreed to sell $350 million worth of military equipment to Australia.

    At the same time, the U.S.announced it was selling $650 million of arms -- mostly warplanes -- to Britain.

    The Australian purchases, in addition to previously announced plans to buy $125 million worth of F-111 fighter planes and three destroyers at a cost of $130 million, were earmarked for a variety of military supplies to support the new expanded Australian defense program.

    The supplies will include Tartar surface-to-air- guided missiles, anti-submarine torpedoes and rapid-fire gun batteries.

    The U.S.is making credit available to Australia, but Australia is expected to pay cash for at least the next two years.
