Raytheon announced Tuesday that it has signed a $35 million contract to deliver Stinger missiles and air-to-air launchers to the Republic of Korea Army in support of their recent procurement of AH-64 Apache helicopters.

Under the previously announced foreign military sale, Raytheon will begin deliveries of the Stinger weapon systems in 2017.

"Stinger provides self-protection capabilities as well as defensive counter-air protection of aviation and ground forces," said Michelle Lohmeier, vice president of Raytheon's Land Warfare Systems product line. "Stinger operates day and night, in all environmental conditions and allows for the engagement of multiple targets within seconds."

Stinger enhances the capabilities of the aircraft to perform missions to counter existing threats.

Jack Elliot, Raytheon's Stinger program director said, "Stinger is an immediate- response weapon of choice against a wide range of air threats for protection of both fixed sites and maneuver forces."
