That is a great deal, looks very cost effective. Both for JAASM-ER and AIM-120.

I think that might be the single biggest export sale of cruise missiles in history, god damn. Does that come to 2.1 million a piece? Double god damn, good price.

Good start for LM and RTX in 2024.

Poland signs major deal for several hundred JASSM-ER air-launched cruise missiles​


"
On May 28, the Polish Ministry of National Defence signed a substantial contract with the United States government for the procurement of JASSM AGM-158B ER air-launched cruise missiles, manufactured by American defence industry giant Lockheed Martin.

According to the ministry, the deal is valued at approximately USD 735 million. Deliveries of the JASSM-ER cruise missiles will begin in 2026 and are scheduled to be completed by 2030.
The exact number of JASSM-ER cruise missiles ordered by Poland has not been disclosed. The Polish Ministry of National Defence stated that the contract covers “several hundred” missiles. However, in March 2024, the United States Department of State approved a possible sale to Poland of up to 821 JASSM-ER missiles.
The Polish Ministry of National Defence stated that the war in Ukraine has demonstrated the crucial importance of having the capability to strike targets deep behind enemy lines on the modern battlefield.

The AGM-158 JASSM-ER cruise missile has a range of approximately 1,000 km. The Polish Air Force currently has both JASSM and JASSM-ER cruise missiles in its arsenal, carried by F-16 fighter jets, which are the core of the Polish Air Force.
In April 2024, then-Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki visited a Lockheed Martin facility. During his visit, he indicated Poland’s interest in also purchasing JASSM-XR missiles, which have a range of 1,600-1,800 km. According to the Polish Ministry of National Defence, this newly contracted large number of JASSM-ER cruise missiles will become a key component of the Polish national early warning and deterrence system"
