Rheinmetall Defence Electronics GmbH (Germany) and IAI/MBT missiles division
(Israel) have signed a cooperation agreement to jointly offer an upgrade kit
aimed at existing Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 main battle tanks with a gun-launched
LAHAT missile system.
The LAHAT upgrade kit will extend the weapon system range of Leopard 1/2 main
battle tanks to over 6,000 meters beyond current gun-launched projectiles. LAHAT
is a laser-guided, anti-armor, pinpoint precision kill missile suitable for both
105mm (Leopard 1) and 120mm (Leopard 2) guns.
Increasing the effective firepower and main gun range with a cost-effective
upgrade kit will enhance the survivability of existing Leopard 1 and Leopard 2
Diehl (40%), Rheinmetall (40%), and Rafael (20%) have signed another agreement
establishing a new company, EuroSpike GmbH, which will serve as the prime
contractor for European customers of Spike family of anti-armor missiles. The
