General Dynamics to Manufacture Missile Tubes for US, UK Submarines

The Pentagon has awarded General Dynamics $56 million to manufacture 18 missile tubes for submarines of the United States and the United Kingdom naval forces.

Work will be performed in Quonset Point, Rhode Island, and is for the manufacturing of 18 missile tubes in support of US Navy's Columbia-class fleet ballistic missile submarines and the UK Dreadnought, the Pentagon said in a statement.

This is a joint US and UK common missile compartment program, and the modification is funded with UK Foreign Military Sales funding.

Work is expected to be complete by May 2028.
