Elbit Systems has received a $30 million contract to supply its Stylet precision guided mortar munition (GMM) to an unnamed Asia-Pacific country, the company announced on 11 April.

The contract has a two-year period of performance.

With a range of 1000-8500m, Stylet is designed for tactical combat units and special forces. The multi-mode GPS/INS guided 120mm GMM has an accuracy of less than 10m circular error probable.

Yehuda Vered, general manager of Elbit Systems Land, said: ‘We are proud of the introduction of this new round into our portfolio of precise guided mortar munitions. We see a growing demand for high-precision guided munitions that are also economically efficient.

‘This contract award underscores the company's significantly improved positioning in the ordnance area in general, and in the area of precise guided munitions in particular, following the acquisition of IMI Systems.’
