Army Issues $723M Modification on Lockheed Hellfire II Missile Contract

The U.S. Army has awarded Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) a $723.5M contract modification to provide multiple variants of the Hellfire II missile system.

Lockheed will deliver missiles to domestic and foreign military sales customers that include Lebanon, Netherlands and France, the Department of Defense said Thursday.
