Lockheed Martin has received a contract to upgrade the Finnish Army’s M270 multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) launchers.

Under the $45.3m contract, the company will upgrade 22 launchers by extending strike distance with the universal fire control system and other enhancements.

The M270 launcher upgrade with new artillery options will enable the Finnish Army launchers to fire precision GPS-guided munitions for the first time.

Lockheed Missiles and Fire Control vice-president Scott Arnold said the upgrade would allow full-range usage of MLRS precision munitions, including GMLRS unitary and army tactical missile system (ATACMS).

The MLRS M270 launcher and its munitions are designed to enable troops to target and destroy artillery, air defence concentrations, trucks, light armour and personnel carriers, support troop and supply lines.
