SINGAPORE (BNS): South Korea's Defence Acquisition Programme Administration (DAPA) has awarded Raytheon Company a $31 million contract for additional AGM-65G-2 Maverick missiles.

Under the direct commercial sale, Raytheon will supply the missiles to the Republic of Korea Air Force, a Raytheon statement said.

Maverick is a versatile precision-guided missile that is effective against a wide variety of fixed, stationary, moving and maneuvering targets both on land and sea.

The missile features two warhead options: 300 lb blast fragmentation or 125 lb shaped charge. The three seeker choices of CCD (TV), infrared and laser enable warfighters to conduct around-the-clock operations.

With more than 7,800 launched in combat, Maverick is employed by the United States Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and allied nations on more than 25 types of aircraft, it said.
