Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced on 7 May that it is in the process of acquiring the manufacturing operations of Zibar, Zmag (pictured) and ZD vehicles from Ido Cohen.

The off-road vehicles will be upgraded and adapted for military and homeland defence applications including a range of intelligence, radar and communications systems produced by IAI’s Elta Systems.

Yoav Turgeman, VP and CEO of Elta Systems, said: ‘Integrating these capabilities on the Z Vehicle family provides significant added value to the operational capabilities Elta provides to existing and future customers.’

He continued that: ‘The off-road vehicles will fulfil the operational needs of the ground forces for defence, assault and intelligence.’

All of the vehicles will be made in Israel. A new IAI ground forces facility is also currently under construction which will see millions of dollars invested in innovative technological and R&D infrastructure.
