Arnold Defense has received a $53.8 million contract from the US Department of Defense for the delivery of 2.75-inch rocket launchers and subcomponents.

The orders will support the US Navy, army and air force, along with foreign military sales to Australia.

The contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to $74.3 million over a four-year period, with final delivery expected to be complete in 2023.

Under the contract, the company will deliver the seven-tube M260 and 19-tube M261 Hydra-70 rocket launchers used by US Army helicopters; the seven-tube LAU-68 and LAU-131 series and 19-tube LAU-61 and LAU-130 series used by the US Navy and US Air Force; and various launcher sub-components such as intervalometers and tube assemblies.
