    Israel’s New Super-Precise GPS-Guided Missiles About to Enter Service

    A new GPS-guided artillery rocket capable of hitting targets at a distance of 35 kilometers with a precision of less than 10 meters is about to enter Israeli Defense Force service.

    Israel, Russia Develop Coordination Mechanism to Prevent Air Incidents - Israeli Ambassador
    The Romah, the latest guided missile developed by Israel Military Industries (IMI) firearms manufacturer, will soon be operational, IHS Jane's reported citing sources at the company.

    The rocket is designed for the Israeli army to carry out fast, accurate, and lethal attacks on enemy targets, according to the weapon builder. It is equipped with a 20-kilogram warhead and can reach targets at a distance of 35 kilometers.

    Eli Reiter, head of IMI's Rocket Systems Division, claimed that the new missiles could be fired at pre-programmed co-ordinates within a few seconds from when an order is given.

    "If a sector experiences a security escalation, this firepower can be called upon more rapidly compared with scrambling combat helicopters, and they are more accurate than artillery cannons," he told IHS Jane's.

    The missile is compatible with the Artillery Corps' upgraded version of M270 Multiple-Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS), specifically modified for launching a new type of military weapons. A new pod has been mounted on an earlier system to fire rockets of calibers other than that of 227 mm, including the Romah.

    "The Defense Ministry unveiled on Thursday the first Namer armored personnel carrier equipped with the Trophy HV active protection system. Trophy – made by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems – has already been installed on Merkava MK 4 tanks, protecting them from antitank and rocket- propelled grenade attacks during the 2014 Gaza conflict. Now the system will be installed on every new Namer, the Defense Ministry’s Merkava Tank Administration announced, following the completion of the first operational drill involving IDF personnel at the Armored Corps School in southern Israel. The trial was held by Defense Ministry engineers and IDF ground forces, and came following a series of live-fire tests in which missiles were fired at the Namer and destroyed by Trophy.

    The Trophy-equipped Namers will be able to enter battlegrounds rife with antitank and RPG threats and safely transport infantry, even in the face of multiple, simultaneous threats. "Trophy" is the fruit of a joint development by Rafael, Elta and the American company General Dynamics. It identifies, with special sensors, threats directed against the tank, such as anti-tank rockets and missiles, and fires a special charge to neutralize them.



    “We will implement the Defense Ministry’s policy of equipping every Namer coming off the production line with the only active protection system in the world,” said Brig.-Gen. Baruch Matzliah, the head of the Merkava Tank Administration. “The Namer with the Trophy system will form the highest level of protection for IDF soldiers and provide them with defense and a significant advantage on the battlefield.” Matzliah added. During Operation Protective Edge, the Namer APC was used to save the lives of many soldiers who were protected by its reinforced armored structure. Last year, the Defense Ministry doubled its orders for parts for both Namer and Merkava MK 4 tanks ahead of an expected rise in orders for them. Some 200 factories produce parts for the Merkava and Namer across Israel, most of them located in peripheral areas, employing around 10,000 people."

    The Israeli Defence Force has ordered dozens of Urdan Backtrail logistics trailers that can be towed behind tanks and SP guns:

    That trailer reminds me of the sleds the Soviets used to tow with soldiers on in winter warfare.

    In the 1980s in Afghanistan they had trailers for the T-62s to carry extra HE ammo for longer persistence in combat.

    Always thought they could expand it further with more fuel and ammo with a direct link for the fuel so it could work as an external fuel tank that can be dumped if needed but could feed fuel to the tank to keep the tank topped off with fuel on long marches.

    Israel reveals defensive boost for CH-53 fleet

    Developed by Israeli industry, the new defensive capability is referred to by the service as the Dragon Block 3. It is designed to give effective warning of missile attack, and fast activation of countermeasures equipment, with 360° coverage.


    Launched in 2006, the air force's modernisation programme for the CH-53 "Yasur" is intended to keep the rotorcraft in service until at least 2025. Work included structural treatments and the installation of new avionics and other systems to support the range of missions that the heavy-lift type is required to perform.

    Israel's CH-53s were involved during recent conflicts in Lebanon and Gaza, during which the aircraft were targeted by a variety of rockets and missiles.

    "Israel Aerospace industries (IAI) introduces the RoBattle – an unmanned, heavy duty, highly maneuverable combat and support robotic system, at Eurosatory 2016 (13-17 June, Paris, France). The system is designed to be integrated with tactical forces in mobile, dismounted operations and support a wide range of missions including intelligence, surveillance and armed reconnaissance; convoy protection, decoy, and ambush and attack.

    Based on the IAI’s cutting edge technology, RoBattle, the newest member of the family of unmanned ground robotic systems from IAI, is equipped with a modular “robotic kit” comprised of vehicle control, navigation, RT mapping and autonomy, sensors and mission payloads. The system can be operated autonomously in several levels and configured with wheels or tracks, to address the relevant operational needs. Operators can equip RoBattle with different payloads including manipulator arms, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) sensors and radars, and remotely controlled weapons.



    “The RoBattle system is based on IAI’s vast experience and heritage in development and manufacturing of unmanned systems including unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). With the modular ‘robotic kit’ methodology, designed to meet specific customer requirements, RoBattle is one of the most advanced combat, maneuvering, ground robotics in the market.” said Meir Shabtai, IAI’s Deputy general manager of ground robotics systems. “The RoBattle will become a significant player in the ground robotics market. It presents advanced technologies and capabilities that can close the operational gaps in the future battlefield challenges. We are looking forward to all opportunities in the market”."

    "Israeli tank «Magach 3» arrived in Moscow Vnukovo Airport for exchange. The tank were transported to Russia on board Antonov An-124 Ruslan planes.

    In May, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to return the Magach tank, seized by the Syrian troops in 1982 during the First Lebanon War and exhibited in Russia, to Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Putin for that decision, pointing out the importance of the step for the families of three Israel Defense Forces (IDF) servicemen, who went missing during the war.



    ”We will pass to Russia the same [model of] tank, so it can be exhibited in a museum,” the press secretary told RIA Novosti. Netanyahu is currently in Moscow with an official visit dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Israel and Russia."

    Israel unveiled an actively protected armored personnel carrier (APC) on Monday, which it hopes to purchase in large numbers over the next ten years. The wheeled demonstrator, named Eitan, Hebrew for “steadfast”, is an 8x8, 35-ton vehicle that is half the cost and weight of the Merkava Mk4-based Namer carriers currently in production.

    Both vehicles were built to replace thousands of M113s that support most of Israel’s infantry and can carry up to 12 infantrymen. According to Brig. Gen. Baruch Matzliah, head of the Ministry of Defense’s Tank Production Office (which designed both vehicles), the Eitan “will be the most advanced, protected wheeled fighting tool in the world.” He said that Eitan was developed to be a multi-mission, low-cost platform that will allow Israel to have more vehicles quicker than they could with heavier vehicles like the Namer.

    It is believed that Eitan will assimilate a new wave of active protection based on the Trophy Active Protection System (TAPS) developed by the state-owned defense company Rafael. The vehicle will also have a full compliment of sensors and munitions, along with an unmanned 30- or 40-millimeter turret.
