{image-Indian Air Force_04102008.jpg}Washington, Oct 4: The United States has offered India the sale of CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapons (SFW) worth $375 million to help the Indian Air Force (IAF) develop and enhance standardisation and operational ability with the United States.

The proposed sale comes three weeks after US offered India a $170 million deal that includes two dozen Harpoon air-to-ground anti-ship missiles. Pentagon's Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) said that India has requested the possible sale of 510 CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapons, 19 CBU-105 Integration test assets (12 live tails, seven inert tails) and five CBU-97 Integration test assets as well as associated equipment and services.

The agency further said, "India has requested offsets for the deal, but at this time agreements are undetermined and will be defined in negotiations between India and the contractor. The prime contractor will be Textron Systems Corporation of Wilmington, Massachusetts."
