FOREIGN MILITARY SALES (FMS) – The two main ways that the U.S. war industry sells weaponry to foreign governments are foreign military sales (FMS) and direct commercial sales (DCS). In FMS, the U.S. government acts as the intermediary between the corporation and the foreign government. DCS are negotiated privately between foreign governments and U.S. corporations. The State Department’s is in charge of issuing the export licenses for DCS. The U.S. war industry leads the world in arms sales. It pitches such sales as advantageous to the Pentagon in terms of economies of scale (i.e. sales to other countries bring down the price per unit) and as helping allies to become interoperable with the U.S. military.
