Rafael Advanced Defence System’s Spike LR2 system has been selected as the anti-tank guided weapon for the Australian Defence Force’s Boxer Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle.

The Spike LR2 will be delivered by Varley Rafael Australia (VRA Systems) – a joint venture between Rafael and the Varley Group - for the Boxer vehicles to be delivered by Rheinmetall Australia.

Jacob Blitman, CEO of VRA, said: 'VRA aims to maximise the proportion of Spike LR2 componentry produced in Australia and deliver through-life in service support, making use of our reach-back to Rafael’s research and development network in Israel.

‘Australian suppliers now have the opportunity to enter Rafael’s global supply chain for the Spike family and a range of Rafael products and systems, servicing more than 30 customer nations.’
