Arnold Defense, the St-Louis based manufacturer of 2.75-inch rocket launchers, will be at this year’s Quad-A, Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit taking place 14-16 April 2019 in Nashville.


Arnold Defense will be showcasing two rocket launchers at the Summit: the 19-round M261 and the ultra-lightweight LWL-12 rocket launcher weighing just over 60 pounds (27 kg) empty. The M261 will be displayed on an AH-6 Little Bird with CFD International, and the LWL-12 will be with Arnold Defense on stand #1151, and also mounted on an MD969 Combat Attack helicopter, the latest evolution of MDHI’s iconic MD 900/902 series.

Arnold Defense is the world’s largest supplier of rocket launchers for military aircraft, vessels, and vehicles; they have manufactured more than 1.2 million 2.75-inch (70mm) rocket launchers since 1961 for the U.S. Armed Forces and a number of NATO customers. They design and manufacture rocket launchers that can be customized for any size, weight, capacity or form factor for platforms in the air, on the ground or at sea.

Arnold’s core products include the 7-round M260 and 19-round M261 commonly used by U.S. Army helicopters; the thermal coated 7-round LAU-68 variants and LAU-61 Digital Rocket Launcher used by the U.S. Navy; and the 7-round LAU-131 and SUU-25 flare dispenser used by the U.S. Air Force. Their newest product, Fletcher, is a 4-round laser target designated, ground-based rocket launcher; a unique concept and design that has seen exceptional levels of international interest.

Jim Hager, President and CEO of Arnold Defense, said “2019 got off to a great start with the recent announcement of a contract that could be worth up to $74.3 million with the U.S. DoD along with ever-growing international, special operations interest in Arnold’s ground-based rocket launcher, Fletcher. As recently announced, Fletcher has just won its first order. We are very much looking forward to focusing on our core business at Quad-A; a forum we know well and where we aim to showcase our continued innovation and dedication to providing only the best weapons systems to today’s modern warfighters”.
