MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) has enhanced the military capabilities of its powerful light twin-engine MD 969 Combat Helicopter with the addition of a custom, 7-shot Common Launch Tube (CLT) System designed by Systima Technologies. Able to deploy a range of guided munitions, sensors and small UAS/UAVs, the MD 969 CLT System can be configured with up to 7 lightweight AGM-176 Griffin missiles, making it one of the deadliest, precision-strike attack helicopters in its class. Subsequent CLT payloads, including a range of munitions and tactical off-board sensors (TOBS), will further expand the operational profile of the MD 969 Twin Attack Helicopter. The CLT is part of a flexible, roll-on/roll-off launch system that is easily integrated into existing platforms. The highly capable launcher has already allowed SOCOM forces to rapidly field a wide range of precision weapons and sensors necessary to support their people.
