The Israeli Ministry of Defense will purchase hundreds of additional Trophy active protection systems (APS), manufactured by Rafael.
The new order will ensure that every new Merkava IV tank and Namer APC will be equipped with the Trophy system, providing significant additional protection for every tank and APC.
In recent months, the Tank Management Program at the Ministry of Defense, together with the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), conducted a series of successful tests on the Namer APC equipped with the Trophy System. Completion of the trials and the integration process allowed for the procurement and production of hundreds of additional Trophy systems.
The Trophy is a situational awareness and active protection hard kill system that operates in three major stages: Threat detection and threat tracking followed by hard kill countermeasure (Multiple Explosive Formed Penetrators – MEFP) activation and threat neutralization.
