The Defense Security Cooperation Agency has stated that the sale of 10 AGM-84L Harpoon Block II air-launched missiles, 16 MK 54 All Up Round Lightweight Torpedoes and three MK 54 Exercise Torpedoes are estimated to cost USD 155 million.

To conduct the anti-surface warfare missions in defence of critical sea lanes, the Harpoon missile system would be integrated into the P-8I anti-submarine warfare aircraft, hence enhancing the inter-operability with the United States and other allied forces. The induction of MK 54 Lightweight Torpedo will enhance India’s capability to conduct anti-submarine warfare missions.
