Lockheed Martin received a USD471 million contract from the U.S. Army for Lot 12 production of GMLRS (Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System) all-weather rockets.

The contract calls for the production of GMLRS Alternative Warhead rockets, GMLRS Unitary rockets, Reduced-Range Practice Rockets (RRPRs) and integrated logistics support for the U.S. Army and Foreign Military Sales.

All production deliveries are anticipated to be completed by the summer of 2019.

In combat operations, each GMLRS rocket is packaged in an MLRS launch pod and is fired from the Lockheed Martin HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System ) or M270 family of launchers.
