WALTHAM, Mass. Raytheon will deliver additional tube-launched, optically tracked, wireless-guided missiles for the TOW weapon system under a $101 million U.S. Army contract announced by the U.S. Department of Defense.
The weapon system transitioned to wireless guidance in 2010 and is being produced for the Army, U.S. Marines, and international customers.
The TOW weapon system, with the multi-mission TOW 2A, TOW 2B Aero and TOW Bunker Buster missiles, is a long-range, heavy assault-precision anti-armor, anti-fortification, and anti-amphibious landing weapon system.
The TOW missile will remain in the Army's inventory until at least 2034.
