21st August 2018 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has received a $218 million contract from the US Army to produce High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launchers and associated hardware for an international customer.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin will deliver 18 HIMARS launchers and associated equipment by December 2020.

HIMARS is a lightweight mobile launcher that consists of a launcher loader module and fire control system mounted on a five-tonne truck chassis. The system fires Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System rockets and Army Tactical Missile System missiles. A specialised armoured cab provides additional protection to the three crew members that operate the system.

With this procurement, HIMARS is now in the inventories of four international partners.
