The US Department of Defence signed an agreement with two American companies to produce bunker buster guided bombs BLU-109 and deliver them to the Armed Forces of Turkey.

Exact volume of deliveries is not reported, however, it is known that total sum of concluded agreements makes up about $683 mln.

Ellwood National Forge and General Dynamics Ordnance & Tactical Systems will act as weapon suppliers.

The purchase will be carried out under the program of weaponry export.

The Turkish party expects the supplies to be finished by 2020 at the very latest.

By the way, Alastair Crooke, former member of the British Intelligence MI6 calimed, that the 'Syrian calm' may turn out to be just a harbinger of a storm, but not the end of the military actions. As he said, groups backed by the US, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia would probably make use of the gained time to rearm.
