New Precision Guided Munitions for the IAF
While the Israeli Air Force is well equipped with ‘smart’ standoff weapon systems, threats developing close to the country’s borders and further afield require additional, even more capable munitions. Arie Egozi examines those currently in production.

The IAF’s demand stems from the operational problem of attacking high-value targets in areas protected by a variety of surface-to-air missiles (SAMs).
