Eurosatory 2018: Raytheon Wins Further TOW Orders from US Army

System Will Remain in US Army Service Through 2050

At Eurosatory on 12 June Raytheon announced a further award from the US Army for continued production of tube-launched, optically-tracked, wireless-guided (TOW) missiles. Valued at $129.9 million, the award is a modification to Raytheon’s existing $320 million production contract.

The anti-armor, anti-fortification weapon system combats battlefield threats and gives ground forces an overmatch advantage against armored and wheeled systems, regardless of the environment or conditions, and is capable of defeating all known armour systems. TOW is deployed with more than 20 international armed forces, and integrated on vehicles and helicopters worldwide. Raytheon has delivered more than 690,000 TOW missiles to the US Army, US Marine Corps and allied militaries. The system will be in service with the US military through 2050.

TOW’s precision and firepower give US and allied ground troops a significant advantage on the battlefield. […] Worldwide demand for TOW continues to be strong, and we expect to produce and deliver it for many years to come,” commented Raytheon Land Warfare Systems’ Vice President, Kim Ernzen.
