Israeli defense firm, Elbit Systems announced yesterday that it has been awarded a $127 million contract to supply vehicular tactical radio systems to the “Army of a country in South Asia,” believed to be India.
Elbit did not mention to which country the tactical radios will be sold to but the only country in South Asia which buys from Israel would be India and possibly Sri Lanka. While Sri Lanka would not have such a huge requirement nor such a big budget for Tactical radios, India on the other hand has both.
Various Israeli media outlets said quoting unnamed sources that the country in question was India.
The vehicular tactical radio systems will be delivered over a three year period. The radios to be supplied will include several configurations for integration onboard a range of armored fighting vehicles and tanks at the battalion and company levels.
Elbit Systems president and CEO Bezhalel Machlis said in a press release, "We are pleased with this contract award which shows that customers recognize the advantages of our radio systems. We believe that there is a significant growth potential for our communications and command and control solutions as armed forces increasingly seek to build up their networked warfare capabilities."
