Arnold Defense™, the St. Louis based manufacturer of 2.75-inch rocket launchers, will be unveiling their sensational new high-capacity rocket launcher, the Multiple Launch Hydra System (MLHS™) at DSEi London, 10-13 September 2019. Prior to the MLHS™ debut, Arnold Defense™ will also be attending the 27th International Defence Industry Exhibition, MSPO, taking place in Poland, 03-06 September 2019.
The MLHS™ is a new surface-based, 23-round, 2.75-inch/70mm precision-guided rocket launcher. When coupled with the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS), the most accurate precision guided weapon in its class, the MLHS™ is set to transform the surface defence world by delivering a low-cost, high-capacity surgical strike capability.
Whilst the MLHS™ is a new system, it represents a significant product development of Arnold Defense’s™ exceptional FLETCHER™ surface-based, laser-guided rocket launcher. Prior to the development of FLETCHER™, the delivery of precision weapons in support of land-forces necessitated the deployment of air or aviation assets; assets that are expensive and not guaranteed to be available when needed. MLHS™ offers the same organic surface-to-surface precision effect with the versatility and utility demonstrated by FLETCHER™, coupled with significant additional delivery capacity. Both systems meet the demands of modern surface-based, asymmetric warfare, optimized for use by both special and conventional forces.
Jim Hager, President and CEO of Arnold Defense™ said “It is always great to be exhibiting at DSEi, where we had the privilege to reveal the FLETCHER™ concept in 2017. This year we take that concept a step further with our newest rocket launcher, the Multiple Launch Hydra System”. He added “Both DSEi and MSPO offer a fabulous opportunity to engage with our European and wider international partners and customer base; where Arnold Defense™ will be showcasing our continued innovation and dedication to providing only the best weapons systems to today’s modern warfighters”.
At MSPO, Arnold Defense™ will be exhibiting the LWL-12, another of their core products, at the Works 11 booth, E 38- E42. Meet the Arnold Defense™ team on their stand, F-47 in the USA Pavilion.
Arnold’s unveiling of the MLHS™ will take place at DSEi, where the system will be mounted on the UNIMOG LTTV on the Jankel Stand N6-350. Their FLETCHER™ rocket launcher will also be on display on BAE Stand S4-200, S4-240, mounted on the Level Peaks M205 tripod, with Capco mount plate.
