Extended Length Launcher
The LAU-68 F/A is primarily utilized by the U.S. Navy. Although it resembles the LAU-131 A/A, this launcher has a thermal coating that prolongs the cook-off time. Additionally, the LAU-68 F/A has one firing connector, unlike the two found on the LAU-131 A/A. This launcher often gets mistaken for the LAU-68 F/A, which can be distinguished by its thermal coating and lack of dual firing connections. Its length allows for the successful firing of APKWS II. Like the LAU-61 G/A, the LAU-68 F/A is only available through Foreign Military Sales.
