The Hungarian Armed Forces have ordered advanced radar systems from Rheinmetall which, together with partner Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), will supply radar systems designed for various missions. Shipment of the systems will begin at the end of 2022 and run through to the end of 2027.
In its capacity as general contractor, Rheinmetall Canada will be supplying the advanced active 3D radar systems, which are made by Rheinmetall’s partner ELTA, a subsidiary of IAI. Hungary is Rheinmetall Canada’s most important export customer in the field of radar system integration. In its home market, Rheinmetall Canada has already cooperated successfully with IAI/ELTA in MRR projects previously completed for the Canadian Armed Forces and intends to leverage its expertise acquired in Canada for its new NATO customer.
This latest sales success underscores once again Rheinmetall’s readiness to take part in major defence modernisation projects in close cooperation with the armed forces and local industry of its partner nations.
