Description: The Extended Range Artillery (EXTRA) is a precision rocket munition developed by IAI MLM and IMI Rocket Systems Division. The scope of this program was to develop a rocket weapon compatible with a wide range of launch platforms while providing outstanding precision against ground ground targets. This precision-guided non-line-of-sight strike weapon was designed for either Israel armed forces and export customers.
The EXTRA rocket munition is being offered packaged in a four-unit pod configuration for land based launchers. It can be installed on high mobility trucks or fixed stations. EXTRA is delivered in a disposable sealed canister providing long service and low maintenance costs. The guidance system used on this strike weapon has not been disclosed yet it is assumed that relies on command and control systems and fast target acquisition.
The rocket munition performance is impressive with an estimated range in excess of 130 kilometers carrying a 125 kg warhead. The launch weight is 450 kg and the Circular Error Probable (CEP) stands below 10 meters. Its dimensions are very similar to the proven M26 employed on the M270 MLRS operated by the United States Army and allied countries. It is slightly wider than the M26 in diameter 30cm (EXTRA) versus 22.7cm and 3.97 meters in length.
It was anticipated that EXTRA will under demonstration tests on the second half of 2006.
