Description: The Lockheed-Martin M299 is an all-digital, smart, helicopter-mounted missile launcher enabled to carry and fire any combination of Hellfire II and Longbow Hellfire missiles. It has been integrated into the Apache's weapon system and is suited for many other helicopter types. This launcher also accepts the Joint Common Missile (JCM) that will replace Hellfire and TOW anti-tank missiles in late this decade.

The M299 is a variant of M272 launcher tailored to accommodate state-of-the-art digital design, which permits to recognize and to fire all AGM-114 missile variants and provides ease of repair and integration on many platforms and reduced operation costs. The prime customers for the M299 launcher is the AH-64D Apache attack helicopter and Seahawk helicopter, and is planned for integration on Tiger (Australia Tiger ARH) and Cobra attack helicopters.

The M299 launcher is under contract with the US Army and Foreign Military Sales (FMS). Deliveries of 1,697 M299s under contract began in 2000 and will extend until late 2005.
