14th January 2019 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Finnish Defence Forces' Logistics Command has received a mandate from the Finnish Ministry of Defence for the procurement of counter-battery radars following an international tender process.

The radar systems, training support and spare parts will be procured from ELTA Systems.

The new systems will enhance the army's target acquisition capabilities for counter-battery operations. They will also be used for fire observation and air surveillance.

The selected system was tested in Finland in spring 2018.

Millog and Telva will be in charge of systems maintenance services. Millog is the Finnish Defence Forces strategic partner in maintenance and Telva represents ELTA Systems in Finland.

Deliveries are scheduled for 2021.
