Elbit Systems to Supply SABRAH Armoured Vehicles to Asia-Pacific Customer

€142 Million for SABRAH and PANDUR II

Elbit Systems has won a contract valued at $172 million (€141.8 million) to supply light tanks to an Asia-Pacific army over a three-year period, the company announced on 26 January.

The company will act as prime contractor for the supply of 30t SABRAH light tanks, based on the General Dynamics European Land Systems (GDELS) ASCOD and the Excalibur Army PANDUR II 8×8. SABRAH provides a unique combination of high firepower and manoeuvrability. Both platforms will be equipped with a 105mm turret and a range of the company’s subsystems, including electro-optical sights, fire control systems, TORCH-XT battle management systems, E-LynX software-defined radio systems and life support systems.

This light tank contract reflects the mutually beneficial strategic co-operation between Elbit Systems and GDELS, based on joint development and manufacturing of vehicle-turret solutions. Our comprehensive portfolio of subsystems provides us with a strong position in the armoured vehicle market, especially as mission requirements become more diverse and increasingly networked. We believe that the SABRAH light tank solution can provide high operational value for additional armed forces,” commented Elbit Systems President & CEO, Bezhalel Machlis.
