Arnold Defense is the world's largest supplier of rocket launchers with more than 1.1 million 2.75-inch rocket launchers manufactured since 1961 for the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and many NATO customers. Traditionally, 2.75-inch rocket systems have been used as an area suppression weapon, ordinarily deployed by aviation assets. The Arnold Defense team is currently developing the FLETCHER smart, laser-guided 4 round launcher, which will be available in 2018. A special forces vehicle- mounted FLETCHER prototype utilizes the advancement of laser guided rocket technology to meet the modern demands of air, land and marine-based, mounted and dismounted asymmetric warfare, for special and conventional forces.

The company designs and manufactures rocket launchers that can be customized for any size, weight, capacity or form factor for platforms in the air, on the ground or at sea. Their products include the new, ultra-light LWL-XII that weighs just over 60 pounds (27 kg) empty. Other core products include the 7-round M260 and 19-round M261 commonly used by U.S. Army helicopters; the thermal coated 7-round LAU-68 variants and LAU-61 Digital Rocket Launcher used by the U.S. Navy; and the 7-round LAU-131 and SUU-25 flare dispenser used by the U.S. Air Force.
