Raytheon Contract for 1,300 Stinger Missiles

Replacements for Stocks Sent to Ukraine

Raytheon Missiles & Defense has received a US Army contract, valued at $624 million, to produce 1,300 Stinger surface-to-air missiles and provide associated engineering and test equipment and support, address obsolescence, modernise key components and accelerate production, the company announced on 27 May.

We’re aligned with the US Army on a plan that ensures we fulfil our current foreign military sale order, while replenishing Stingers provided to Ukraine and accelerating production,” explained Wes Kremer, the company’s President. “The funding will be used to enhance Stinger’s producibility in an effort to meet the urgent need for replenishment.”

Self-contained and rapidly deployable, Stinger’s supersonic speed, agility and highly accurate guidance and control system give the weapon an operational edge against cruise missiles and all classes of aircraft.

The contract is being funded from the $40+ billion authorised under the Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act 2022, which contains emergency funding to support Ukrainian defence forces. Raytheon Missiles & Defense continues to work closely with the US Army and its supplier partners to rapidly support the growing demand for Stinger.

The US Army is taking the opportunity of replacing Stingers recently sent to Ukraine to address obsolescence and modernisation issues for the system. (Raytheon)
