Abstract:

Foreign Military Sales FMS is a popular topic and a common subject for magazines and newspapers, but people, at least in Spain, think about it as a business for buying and selling military equipment. This paper seeks to clarify the FMS concept as a broader component of Security Assistance, and to analyze it from the Spanish point of view considering its political-military, economical, and industrial factors. It also tries to make recommendations for the Spanish and American side, and to define benefits for both countries if FMS can be increased.
