Slovakia is to purchase 17 radar devices from Israel. The two countries signed an agreement for the procurement of new 3D radar systems for the Slovak Armed Forces and also an agreement on industrial cooperation on Thursday.
“This is an important day for the security and defence of Slovakia,” Minister Jaroslav Naď said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “The new radars for our air force are really a necessity due to the alarming technical condition and longevity of the current ones. I am therefore extremely pleased that the new technology, which for decades has only been talked about, will finally become a reality.”
