General Dynamics has won US Army contracts for the production of 2.75"/70mm Hydra-70 air-to-ground rocket system for US military and foreign customers.

Both options exercised are part of a supplies contract originally awarded to General Dynamics in 2014.

Hydra-70 is a family of unguided rockets offering several warhead configurations that enable an aircrew to match the rocket to the specific mission. Rockets can be fired from a variety of rotary and fixed-wing platforms, including the U.S. Army Apache and US Marine Corps Cobra attack helicopters, the US Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon and combat aircraft of many nations worldwide.

Dan Paul, vice president and general manager for precision systems, General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems said, "Our Hydra-70 rockets provide the warfighter with firepower that is versatile, affordable and reliable in multiple combat roles. We look forward to the continuation of our strong partnership with the US military and its allies."
