Latest batch of orders includes two customers in Asia.

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced on 1 February that it is supplying ‘several countries’ with loitering munitions, in three new contracts worth a combined total of more than $100 million.

An Asian navy will receive the Harop Maritime system, which is a long-endurance munition that can be launched from various platforms, such as OPVs, and is equipped with various UAV capabilities.

Another customer in Asia has ordered the Harop land attack variant.

IAI is also selling its Rotem multi-purpose tactical loitering munition to an overseas customer after winning an international tender.

Boaz Levy, IAI president and CEO, said: ‘These contracts are further proof of the importance and confidence modern armies place in accurate munitions systems as part of their arsenal, and may be harbingers of additional business activity in this field.’
