The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) plans to acquire Accular, Extra and Jumper advanced accurate rocket systems next year to increase its precision strike capabilities.

The Accular rocket is a 60mm autonomous surface-to-surface missile guided by a GPS system and is designed to destroy artillery batteries and infantry command posts from a new launcher called Lynx.

The EXTRA, which is under development, has a range of 150km and is capable of carrying a 120kg warhead.

The Jumper is an autonomous system for infantry forces operating behind enemy lines to strike targets at ranges of 50km and includes a 3×3 canister that can be deployed in enemy territory.

The systems would be used to attack static targets like radar stations and military bases.

The procurement of the longer-range rockets by the IDF Artillery Corps is believed to be aimed at aiding future conflict with Hezbullah.
