The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Bahrain to refurbish the Oliver Hazard Perry Class ship, ex ROBERT G. BRADLEY (FFG 49) with support for an estimated cost of $150 million.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on October 22, 2019.

The Government of Bahrain has requested refurbishment of the Oliver Hazard Perry Class ship, spares, support, training, publications, and other related elements of logistics and program support. The estimated cost is $150 million.

The proposed sale will refurbish and support the grant transfer of the Oliver Hazard Perry Class ship (ex ROBERT G. BRADLEY -FFG 49), which was authorized for transfer under Public Law 115-232, Section 1020. Bahrain already operates another Oliver Hazard Perry Class ship. Bahrain will have no difficulty absorbing these defense articles and services into its armed forces.
