The Israeli Defence Forces has successfully tested the abilities of the Trophy active defence system by firing anti-tank missiles at a manned Merkava 4 tank.

The military training exercise was conducted with kinetic missiles without warheads, which simulate the missile’s path, so that the system will intercept and destroy aerial threats.

Trophy uses special radars and sensors to identify various threats, such as incoming missiles, and launches a special explosive to neutralise them.

It is expected that the system will be integrated into all of the battalion’s companies and be fully operational way in the coming months.

The Trophy active tank defence system has been jointly developed by Rafael, Elta and GD.
