“The MIM-104 Patriot is a surface-to-air missile (SAM) system, the primary of its kind used by the United States Army and several allied nations.”
“Prosecutors also alleged that Mr. Pouryan, one of the U.S. citizens charged in the alleged plot, met with an informant and discussed providing surface-to-air missiles, anti-tank missiles, grenade launchers, AK-47s and M-16s.”
