27th February 2020 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The United Arab Emirates Air Force and Air Defence (AFAD) has ordered Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP) from Lockheed Martin, the company announced on 26 February.

Under a direct commercial sale contract, the company will supply the Sniper ATP for integration on the UAE’s Mirage 2000 aircraft. The system will give the aircraft an improved precision targeting capability.

The Sniper ATP detects, identifies, automatically tracks and laser designates small tactical targets at long ranges. It also supports employment of all laser- and GPS-guided weapons against multiple fixed and moving targets.

The order also includes spares and upgrades.
