Israel to Sell Protection Kits for Germany's Leopard 2 tanks
U.S. Army's Abrams tank is fitted with Israeli Trophy Active Protection System

Israel’s Rafael Advanced Systems will provide Trophy tank protection systems to Germany for equipping them on the army’s Leopard 2 tanks.

The contract signed between Israel's Ministry of Defense and the German Federal Ministry of Defense also includes tank equipment, interceptors, spares parts and operational and technical training.

Rafael's Trophy system is fitted on Israel's Merkava Mark 4 tanks and U.S. Army’s Abrams tanks.

The Trophy system creates a neutralization bubble around the vehicle. It detects, classifies and engages all known chemical energy (CE) threats – including recoilless rifles, ATGMs, AT rockets, HEAT tank rounds, and RPGs. It increases the lethality of a formation/force, successfully neutralizing the enemy's anti-tank teams.

It can locate the fire source, enabling the crew to return fire effectively with the Samson 30 RWS, or by interfacing with other fighting platforms via the BMS network.
