Defense Ministry increases production of Namer APCs

As part of lessons learned during Operation Protective Edge last summer and the growing need for advanced armored personnel carriers, Israel has signed a 310 million dollar contract with General Dynamics for the production of additional Namer APCs.

The platforms will come with Rafael’s Trophy active protection system on board, offering defenses against shoulder-held missile and mortar attacks, common in combat in Gaza and southern Lebanon.

A Defense Ministry delegation in the US signed an agreement with General Dynamics for the purchases of frames and systems to manufacture additional Namer vehicles, the ministry announced on Tuesday.
