Lockheed Martin wins $309 million Javelin missile contract from U.S. army
(Reuters) – Lockheed Martin Corp has been awarded two contracts worth $309 million by the U.S. Army for its Javelin missiles, the antitank weapon that has helped Ukraine, the company said on Monday.
The Javelin missiles are made jointly by Lockheed and Raytheon Technologies’ missile unit.
Demand for Javelin missiles remains high as the war in Ukraine worsens, where they were used to stop Russian tanks from advancing on the capital, to an artillery battle in Ukraine’s east.
So far, the United States has sent more then 5,500 Javelin systems to Ukraine.
