In a strategic move to fortify its anti-armor capabilities and augment its military platforms, the United States Army recently awarded Raytheon a hefty sum to procure the state-of-the-art missile.
Clinching a Multimillion-Dollar Contract
On August 15, defense technology giant Raytheon received a substantial $323-million contract to manufacture tube-launched, optically-tracked, wireless-guided (TOW) 2B top-attack missiles. These sophisticated missiles are set to bolster the Army’s anti-armor, anti-bunker, anti-fortification, and anti-amphibious landing capabilities, reaffirming the military’s commitment to staying at the forefront of cutting-edge weaponry.
With anticipated delivery by September 2026, the TOW 2B missile is poised to join the ranks of advanced military weaponry, shaping the future of modern warfare preparedness.
