Slovakia will hold talks with France, the USA and Israel over the purchase of 17 military 3D radars worth €155 million, the Defence Ministry informed on its website.

The decision was made by experts from the Defence Ministry and Slovakia's Armed Forces. They analysed technical and operational requirements, price offers, compatibility with other NATO systems, as well as the date of delivery among other criteria.

Overall, 13 countries submitted their bids, including the Czech Republic, the UK, Poland, Hungary, the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey.

The new radars will replace the old military radars, which cannot be integrated with the NATO systems. The purchase of radars is part of the modernisation of Slovakia's Armed Forces.

Last summer, Slovakia also signed a deal for the purchase of 14 American jets F-16. Moreover, the country will be purchasing 4x4 combat armoured and multi-role tactical vehicles.
