The Latvian Ministry of Defence (MoD) is set to sign a $132.3 million contract with EuroSpike for the purchase of Israeli-made Spike anti-tank missile systems.

The new Spike systems will add to existing stockpiles and will enhance the combat capability of the Latvian armed forces and the National Guard. They will be installed on Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked) vehicles procured from the UK.

Spike missile systems feature data transmitters that send data from the rocket to the control and launch console. The systems can be operated remotely. The missile provides high precision and high lethality against various targets, including advanced main battle tanks.

The anti-tank missile systems will be integrated by 2023.
