The United States has delivered a shipment of Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) laser-guided rockets to Lebanon for an approximate price of $16 million.

These APKWS laser-guided rockets are a key component for the Lebanese Air Force’s new A-29 Super Tucano attack aircraft, the US Embassy in Beirut confirmed the delivery on Twitter Wednesday.

Today’s delivery demonstrates the US government’s firm and steady commitment to support to the Lebanon Army in their capacity as the sole, legitimate defender of Lebanon.  Since 2005, the US has invested over $2 billion in our strong partnership with the LAF, the Embassy tweeted.
