The contract will be performed over a period of three years and includes options for further extensions.
Yehuda (Udi) Vered, General Manager of Elbit Systems Land: “We are honored by the decision of an additional NATO member to arm their tanks with Elbit Systems’ innovative 120 mm tank ammunition. The contract provides a strong vote of confidence in our portfolio of advanced munitions.”
Elbit Systems states that its munitions portfolio includes a diverse range of advanced munitions for defense and homeland security forces, including precision-guided rockets, long-range precise air-to-ground missiles, high-penetration bombs and an array of high-performance ammunition solutions for artillery, tanks and mortars.
