U.S. Arms Sales: Agreements with and Deliveries to Major Clients, 2002-2009
Congressional Research Service


Summary
This report provides background data on U.S. arms sales agreements with and deliveries to its
major purchasers during calendar years 2002-2009, made through the U.S. Foreign Military
Sales (FMS) program. In a series of data tables, it lists the total dollar values of U.S. governmentto-
government arms sales agreements with its top five purchasers, and the total dollar values of
U.S. arms deliveries to those purchasers, in five specific regions of the world for three specific
periods: 2002-2005, 2006-2009, and 2009 alone. In addition, the report provides data tables
listing the total dollar values of U.S. government-to-government arms agreements with and
deliveries to its top 10 purchasers worldwide for the periods 2002-2005, 2006-2009, and for 2009
alone.
This report is prepared in conjunction with CRS Report R41403, Conventional Arms Transfers to
Developing Nations, 2002-2009, by Richard F. Grimmett. That annual report details both U.S.
and foreign arms transfer activities globally and provides analysis of arms trade trends. The intent
here is to complement that elaborate worldwide treatment of the international arms trade by
providing only the dollar values of U.S. arms sales agreements with and delivery values to its
leading customers, by geographic region, for the calendar years 2002-2005, 2006-2009, and 2009.
Unlike CRS Report R41403, this annual report focuses exclusively on U.S. arms sales and
provides the specific names of the major U.S. arms customers, by region, together with the total
dollar values of their arms purchases or deliveries. This report will not be updated.

U.S. Arms Sales: Agreements with and Deliveries to Major Clients, 2002-2009
Congressional Research Service 1

his report provides background data on U.S. arms sales agreements with and deliveries to
its major purchasers during calendar years 2002-2009. It provides the total dollar values of
U.S. arms agreements with its top five purchasers in five specific regions of the world for
the periods 2002-2005, 2006-2009, and for 2009, and the total dollar values of U.S. arms
deliveries to its top five purchasers in five specific regions for those same years. In addition, the
report provides a listing of the total dollar values of U.S. arms agreements with and deliveries to
its top 10 purchasers for the periods 2002-2005, 2006-2009, and for 2009. The data are official,
unclassified, United States Defense Department figures compiled by the Defense Security
Cooperation Agency (DSCA), unless otherwise indicated. The data have been restructured for this
report by DSCA from a fiscal year format to a calendar year format. Thus a year in this report
covers the period from January 1 to December 31, and not the fiscal year period from October 1
to September 30.1

U.S. Agreements with Leading Purchasers, 2002-2009
The following regional tables (Tables 1-5) provide the total dollar values of all U.S. defense
articles and defense services sold to the top five purchasers in each region indicated for the
calendar year(s) noted. These values represent the total value of all government-to-government
agreements actually concluded between the United States and the foreign purchaser under the
Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program during the calendar year(s) indicated.2 In Table 6, the total
dollar values of all U.S. defense articles and defense services sold to the top 10 purchasers
worldwide are provided for calendar year period noted. All totals are expressed as current U.S.
dollars.

1 The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) publishes an annual volume providing these data in a fiscal year
format. This publication is titled Foreign Military Sales, Foreign Military Construction Sales, and Military Assistance
Facts. It provides detailed U.S. annual transactions with countries and international organizations for the most recent
ten fiscal years, as of the date of publication, as well as aggregate data for these transactions since FY1950. See DSCA
website for this data under DSCA Facts Book at www.dsca.osd.mil... For detailed worldwide arms transfer data
for U.S. and foreign suppliers and recipients, see CRS Report R41403, Conventional Arms Transfers to Developing
Nations, 2002-2009, by Richard F. Grimmett.
2 Current U.S. law and regulations do not require U.S. companies to provide, routinely and systematically, data on arms
sales agreements actually concluded with foreign purchasers resulting from commercial licenses authorized by the U.S.
State Department. Thus, the agreement data in the following tables do not include the values of U.S. licensed
commercial sales.

I can't even add up that much money. When do we get our cut of the profits.
Great presentation.
