IMI wins over $230m in orders

The deals, amid a privatization battle, include sale of artillery to an Asian army.

Merav Ankori 5 Jul 10 16:23

Israel Military Industries Ltd. (IMI) reported two substantial deals this morning. IMI won a $210 million artillery order from an Asian army and a NIS 90 million order from Israel's Ministry of Defense for heavy ammunition for the IDF. The orders have been placed as IMI is waging a battle with the Ministry of Finance against privatization.

Commenting on the Asian order for advanced artillery systems for various ranges, IMI said, "Our products were chosen due to the overall response that the systems provide for performance needs and due to the ease with which they can be operated and maintained."

The Lynx is a cost-effective multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) derived from a 6x6 high mobility chassis designed to fire any rocket from 122mm to 300mm. This full autonomous launcher can be reloaded in 10 minutes. The Lynx MLRS can be configured to carry a variety of rockets in two sealed pod containers: 40 (2 pods x 20 rockets each) 122mm Grad rockets with a maximum range of 20-to-40 kilometers; 26 (2x13) 160mm LAR-160 or ACCULAR rockets with a maximum range of 45 kilometers; or eight (2x4) 300mm EXTRA rockets with a maximum range of 150 kilometers. Besides, this artillery system can be launch platform for the Delilah-GL precision attack weapon and maybe the LORA tactical ballistic missile which has a maximum range of 280 kilometers.
