Raytheon has won a $129 million contract for procurement of tube launched optically tracked wireless guided (TOW)missiles for the US Marine Corps, US Army, Bahrain and Morocco.
Work will be completed with an estimated completion date of Aug. 4, 2018, The US department of defense said in a statement Tuesday.
The TOW 2A, TOW 2B Aero and TOW Bunker Buster missiles can be fired from all TOW launchers – including the Improved Target Acquisition Systems (ITAS), Stryker anti-tank guided missile vehicle (modified ITAS) and Bradley Fighting Vehicles (Improved Bradley Acquisition Subsystem).
The TOW Weapon System is the long-range precision, heavy anti-tank and assault weapon system of choice for the US Army Stryker, Bradley Fighting Vehicle, ITAS High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle and Light Armored Vehicle-Anti-tank platforms. The TOW weapon system will be in service with the US military beyond 2050.
