Romania Completes Testing & Evaluation of 10 SPIKE LRs

Romanian Army a long time user of the SPIKE missile family

Following an order for SPIKE missiles signed in 2015 by the Romanian government from EuroSpike GmbH (a joint venture between Rafael, Diehl and Rheinmetall), the Romanian Army has recently completed testing and evaluation of ten SPIKE LR (Long Range) missiles. The missiles were fired as part of the Romanian Army procurement and evaluation process at the Cincu National Training Center in Braşov, Romania from he infantry launcher configuration of the ICLU (Integrated Control Launch Unit), which is the new modern digital launcher for SPIKE missiles. The ICLU enables very long range target detection capabilities and integration to a tactical network. The tests were attended by high ranking Romanian officials of army, MOD and local media teams.

The Romanian Army is a long time user of the SPIKE missile family and has deployed SPIKE LRs on BMP infantry fighting vehicles’ 30mm remotely controlled weapon station (RCWS) and the SPIKE ER missile ( with a range of 8km) on PUMA (SOCAT) helicopters.

The Portable Anti-tank SPIKE-LR Procurement Programme will run through 2017-2019 and will equip the infantry, reconnaissance and mountain troop brigades as well as the artillery regiments of the Romanian Land Forces.
