BAE Systems receives $225 million order for additional APKWS kits

HUDSON, N.H. BAE Systems received a $225 million order from the U.S. Navy for additional Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) kits.

The APKWS kits transform standard 2.75” (70mm) Hydra rockets into guided munitions that provide warfighters with a precision strike capability with limited collateral damage. The kits are the U.S. government’s only program of record for 2.75-inch laser-guided rockets, and are available to all four military branches and to allied nations via Foreign Military Sales.
