Seems the Middle East has an appetite (and budget) for Patriot:

Well, Iran is on the other side of the gulf. I think that is a good motivation to buy MIM-104. Though I think the russian offerings are better value for money, the PAC-3 should better integrate in their existing AD structure, that is mostly US made.

The PAC-3 is probably superior at ABM at this point, though S400 is a more mobile and more well rounded system with superior ranged missiles. I know S400 has ABM ability to some extent as well but it has become the MIM-104's primary mission and i suspect is better at it, which is what the Arab countries are looking for. But of course the purchase of Patriot vice S400 is driven more by politics than practical requirements.
