 HERCULES INC. ANNOUNCES $26.5 MILLION CONTRACT
 WILMINGTON, Del., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Hercules Incorporated


(NYSE: HPC) today announced that it has been awarded a $26.5 million contract for rocket motors by the Navy Air Systems command to replace HARM missiles used in Operation Desert Storm.
 The rocket motors will be produced at the company's McGregor, Texas, aerospace facility.
 The award is an add-on to a current contract and contains options through 1995 for future-year procurements with a value of up to $61 million.
 HARM is a high-speed, anti-radiation, air-to-surface missile used to destroy or suppress enemy electronic emitters, especially those associated with radar sites used to direct anti-aircraft guns and surface-to-air missiles.
 Hercules has built the HARM rocket motors since 1985 as one of two sources of supply. With this new contract, Hercules becomes the exclusive sole-source supplier of HARM rocket motors. Delivery of the motors will begin in August 1992 and will be completed by July 1993.
