The U.S. Army has given a contract modification to General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems for additional Hydra-70 air-to-ground rocket systems.

The modification to a 2014 contract, announced Wednesday by the company, was issued by the Army Contracting Command in Redstone Arsenal, Ala., and is worth $60 million.

The unguided 2.75"/70mm Hydra-70 air-to-ground rocket is used by a variety of fixed-wing and rotary aircraft, including Apache and Cobra attack helicopters, F-16 Fighting Falcons and aircraft of many other countries. It comes in a variety of warhead configurations.

The rockets will be for U.S. combat aircraft and for customers of the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program.

"We look forward to continuing to provide this critical munition to the U.S. warfighters and allies."
