Ceradyne announced that it was awarded a contract to provide armor plates for new naval vessels being built for Iraq. The sub-contract is with Turner Strategic Technologies who is actually building the ships. If all parts of the main contract is exercised Ceradyne’s part could be worth $6 million.

Iraq has slowly been investing in new and more modern equipment over the last few years. This has included helicopters and some basic fixed wing aircraft. The Iraqi Navy especially has languished since the First Gulf War and these new ships will be a welcome upgrade to its capability.
