 - February 7, 2018, 2:06 AM

Since 1961 Arnold Defense has been manufacturing rocket launchers for U.S. and allied forces, and has delivered more than 1.1 million 2.75-in units in that time. The company designs and builds launchers in any size and capacity that the customer requires, and the products have been employed on a wide variety of platforms across air, sea and land domains.

Recently the company introduced a new lightweight launcher, designated LWL-12. The launcher weighs just over 60 pounds empty. Another products on display at the Singapore Airshow is the popular M261 19-round launcher for 2.75-in rockets, as used by most AH-64 Apache operators, including the Republic of Singapore Air Force.

Arnold Defense is currently developing a laser-guided rocket launcher system, known as the Fletcher. This will become available later this year, having been exhibited on a special forces vehicle at the AUSA and DSEI defense shows last year.
