The Defense Security Cooperation Agency is looking to promote a third-party transfer option for U.S. allies and partner nations that do not have large defense budgets to procure aircraft or weapons systems through the Department of Defense's foreign military sales program, Breaking Defense reported Friday.

Col. Anthony Walker, senior materiel leader in the Air Force Security Assistance and Cooperation Directorate's international division, told the publication that DSCA Director Heidi Grant is exploring financing options for potential FMS clients and how the agency can help domestic suppliers complete in the international defense market.

Walker noted that the U.S. Air Force could also transfer its offloaded platforms to other countries through a “ramp-to-ramp” process.

“We can take aircraft out of the boneyard, refurbish it and provide that to a partner; we’ve done that, numerous times in the past few years."
