Bahrain Mirror: The U.S. State Department announced that it has cleared Bahrain to buy as many as 3,200 bomb bodies for a cost of about $45 million for the purpose of arming Bahrain's fleet of F-16 fighters.

The purchase of these munitions will bolster the Royal Bahraini Air Force's ability to conduct and sustain air operations with its F-16 combat aircraft.

The U.S. considers Bahrain, a major non-NATO ally, an important partner in the Mideast. According to the announcement, Bahrain will use these munitions to deter regional threats, strengthen its homeland defense and execute counter-terrorism operations.
