WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department has approved the possible sale to Japan of up to nine E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft for an estimated cost of $3.135 billion, the Pentagon said on Monday.

It said in a statement that Japan would use the aircraft to provide “situational awareness of air and naval activity in the Pacific region” and augment its existing E-2C Hawkeye fleet. A unit of Northrop Grumman Corp <NOC.N> will be the principal contractor.
