Israel to supply Montenegro with $35 million worth of remote-controlled weapon stations
Israel and Montenegro have signed a $35 million deal under which Elbit Systems, Israel’s largest defense company, will provide the Balkan country with remote-controlled weapons systems.
According to the agreement, Elbit will supply the Montenegrin Armed Forces with Remote Controlled Weapon Stations for Montenegro’s new armored 4X4 light tactical vehicles.
The new systems will enable accurate firing during movement.
The arms deal, the first between the two countries, was signed in the Israeli Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv on Sunday by Israel’s Director-General of the Defense Ministry Udi Adam and Montenegro’s Defense Minister Predrag Boskovic.
Yehuda Vered, general manager of Elbit Systems’ Land Division, said in a statement issued by the company that the new contract “further expands” the company’s “NATO customer base.”
He said that the company is witnessing a growing demand worldwide to its Remote Controlled Weapon Stations, adding that “many hundreds” of these systems are already operational onboard several land and naval platforms.
