US Army to Purchase Israeli Tank-Defense System

(Israel Hayom/JNS) The U.S. Army plans to purchase Israel’s Trophy defense system to shield its Abrams tanks, Rafael Advanced Defense Systems has announced. The contract is worth $193 million, the company said.

Trophy, also known as the Windbreaker defense system, is an active anti-tank missiles and rocket-defense system designed to intercept and destroy incoming projectiles with a shotgun-like blast.

The system was declared operational in 2011 and has since been installed on more than 1,000 IDF tanks and armored personnel carriers.
