Lockheed Martin to supply more GMLRS

2nd March 2020 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


US Army Contracting Command has awarded Lockheed Martin a $1.14 billion contract modification to produce Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (GMLRS), the DoD announced on 27 February.

The surface-to-surface rockets will be used by the US Army and two FMS recipients: Romania and South Korea. 

Work will be performed in Grand Prairie, Texas, with an estimated completion date of 30 September 2022. 

In April 2018, Lockheed Martin was awarded a $829 million contract for Lot 13 production of GMLRS, destined for three FMS customers and the US Army.

Designed specifically for destroying high-priority targets at ranges up to 70km, GMLRS has been employed in both urban and non-urban environments. It is an all-weather, rapidly deployable, long-range rocket that delivers precision strike beyond the range of most conventional weapons.
