Ducommun to Supply USMC Cobra Assemblies

By Staff Writer | August 6, 2012

Carson, Calif.-based Ducommun Inc. has agreed to provide Bell Helicopter with titanium firewall and baffle assembles for AH-1Z Cobras. The Cobra assemblies are part of the U.S. Marine Corps replacement of two-bladed AH-1Ws with the AH-1Zs. According to Anthony Reardon, president of Ducommun, a benefit to using “complex titanium structures” is that the Cobra assemblies will “retain their strength in extreme high-temperature operating environments.”
