General Dynamics Hydra-70 Rocket Production

General Dynamics : 13 April, 2007  (Company News)
General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products, a business unit of General Dynamics, has received two orders totaling $149 million for the production of 2.75-inch Hydra-70 rockets. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, Redstone Arsenal, Ala., ordered the rockets as part of a five-year requirements contract signed on April 28, 2005, which has a potential value of $900 million. Orders to date under this contract total $502 million.
Hydra-70 is a family of unguided rockets offering several warhead configurations that enable an aircrew to match the Rocket to the specific mission. The widely used Hydra-70 Rocket is versatile, affordable and extremely effective against area suppression-type targets. Rockets can be fired from a variety of rotary and fixed-wing platforms, including the U.S. Army Apache and U.S. Marine Corps Cobra attack helicopters, the U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon and combat aircraft of many nations worldwide.

System engineering and program management will be performed at General Dynamics' Burlington Technology Center in Vermont. Final assembly and component sub-assembly will occur at General Dynamics' Camden, Ark., facility.
