“Israel Defense” reports that Eurospike, a subsidiary of weapons manufacturer Rafael, has signed a contract to supply Spike missiles totaling hundreds of millions of dollars to Germany. Rafael’s Chief Marketing Officer Lova Drori reveals the deal in an interview to be published in a few days in Israel Defense.

According to the Eurospike website, the Spike missile “offers very low life-cycle costs,” which is why they have become “an indispensable weapon for modern armed forces, ranging from infantry and army aviation to naval defense forces.”
