Czechs purchase Israel’s Iron Dome radar in multi-million dollar deal

The Czech Minister of Defense Tawarded Israel’s Aerospace Industries and ELTA a contract for the acquisition of eight ELM-2084 Iron Dome Multi-Mission Radars. The deal, valued at app, $125m, was signed in Prague on Thursday. The radars have air surveillance and air defense capabilities. They will be delivered to the Czech defense establishment over a period ranging from 2021 to 2023 and will be interoperable with Czech and NATO command and control systems. Representing Israel, Brig. Gen. (Ret.), Yair Kulas hailed the transaction as closing a historic circle. The establishment of the State of Israel 70 years found its new army up against an Arab offensive seriously under-armed. The first guns to reach the IDF in those days were rifles from Czechoslovakia.

      Why isn’t DEBKA administrators removing advertisements on this post? I see more advertisers taking advantage of DEBKA’s posts.
