PAS17: IAI LORA Weapon System Successfully Trialled

Trail demonstrates advanced capabilities of LORA (Long-Range Artillery) weapon system

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has successfully completed a firing trail with LORA (Long-Range Artillery) weapon system as the conclusive stage of several deals that involve the system. The experiment consisted of launching a long-range LORA missile to a pre-planned target at sea.

LORA is an artillery weapon system that consists of a long-range tactical ground-to-ground missile developed by IAI’s MALAM division. It is intended for strike scenarios with a range of up to 400km and boasts precision range of 10m or better, according to the company. The LORA missile weighs approx. 1,600 kilogrammes.  

This trail has demonstrated the advanced capabilities of LORA, the weapon system developed by IAI,” Joseph Weiss, IAI President and CEO, said. “LORA complements the range of missile system developed by IAI to round up our fulfilment of our customers’ needs.”

“This was one of the most complexed trails we held over the past few years and a technological breakthrough for IAI’s missile development operations,” Boaz Levi, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Systems, Missiles & Space Group, concluded “The trail was held according to a full operational outline, including an assessment of the system’s maneuvering, assault and precision capabilities. The impressive results attest for the system’s maturity and advanced capabilities.” Levy added, “I would like to thank Israel’s navy, air force, SIBAT and Ministry of Defense for the unusual collaboration which was reflected in the outstanding system performance in this trail.”
