Boeing has won a $22 million contract to supply harpoon air launch missiles to Saudi Arabia.
As per the contract, Boeing will be supplying 13 Harpoon full-up round tactical missiles and seven Harpoon air launch missile containers, US DoD said in a statement Thursday.
The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Maryland, is the contracting activity.
Boeing had offered an upgraded anti-ship and land attack weapon, which doubles the range of the service’s existing Harpoon to the US navy in May this year.
The Harpoon Next-Generation is a sea-skimming land, submarine, air or surface launched missile guided by GPS and inertial navigation systems for destroying a range of targets such as enemy ships, small boats and land targets
