General Dynamics Celebrates 15 Years of Hydra

General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) marked a 15-year milestone this week manufacturing Hydra 70 air-to-ground rockets at the company’s Camden, Ark., plant with delivery of the four-millionth rocket.

Since 1996, GD has been the only manufacturer of the Hydra. The contract to continue supplying the U.S. Army with Hydra rockets has the potential to last until April 2015.

“The tremendous effort to produce thousands of rocket motors per month is accomplished only through the efficiency and experience of our highly skilled employees and our supply partners, ” said Russ Klein, vice president and general manager of General Dynamics’ weapon systems division.  “This team effort has consistently resulted in an effective, affordable weapon for the U.S. military and our allies.”
