it depends on the model.  I certainly hope the latest/greatest aren't being exported.  older patriots have a fragmentation warhead.

The Patriot Advanced Configuration-3 (PAC-3) is the "latest" Patriot missile in production and yes it's being sold to other countries.  The PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (PAC-3 MSE) is still in testing.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIM-104_Patriot#MIM-104F_.28PAC-3.29

That's an accurate article on the missile.  *shrug*

If what they are saying about China breaking into our systems here, they are probably in production making Patriot missiles and selling them for a fraction of what the USA does. 

At what point does the USA grow a set of gonads to deal with China?  Or do we just continue to hand everything over to them?

Nixon's visit and his esablishing ralations with China is seen as his greatest achievement, I see it as treason.

As long as 0 is in power, they will continue to hand everything over.

Helsinki green-lights Patriot missile shipment to SKoreaAFP

HELSINKI — Sixty-nine Patriot missiles impounded in Finland after being found on a merchant vessel in mid-December were headed for South Korea, the Finnish government said Wednesday, granting their transit through Finnish territory.

"The missiles in question had been sold to the Republic of Korea by Germany," the government said in a statement, adding that it had granted a licence to Seoul's "Defence Acquisition Programme Administration to transit through Finnish territory 69 Patriot missiles."

The surface-to-air missiles, produced by US firm Raytheon, were discovered on December 15 aboard the British-registered Thor Liberty docked in the southeastern Finnish port of Kotka.

As I stated earlier, Germany selling South Korea Patriot missiles made sense.
