Elbit Systems Ltd. that it was awarded a contract in an amount of approximately $70 million to supply rockets to the armed forces of a European country. The contract will be performed over a period of 3 years. Under the contract, Elbit Systems will supply 122mm extended-range rockets that are intended to significantly increase the performance and effectiveness of operations by allowing ground forces to concentrate fire at an increased range of up to 40 kilometers. The rocket offers simple autonomous operation in various weather conditions and can be ready to be launched in less than one minute.
The AccuLAR is a family of artillery rockets developed and manufactured by Israel Military Industries (now Elbit Systems) and used by Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and international customers. It features 2 different calibers (AccuLAR-160 and AccuLAR-122) with a maximum range of 40 km with a 20–35 kg unitary penetration or controlled fragmentation warhead and accuracy of 10m CEP. The rocket’s guidance and navigation is performed by a Flight Computer (FC), which includes a GPS. The AccuLAR is a highly accurate, combat-proven guided rocket designed to support ground forces.
In service in Israel Defense Forces, under the name Romach, with dedicated M270 MLRS launchers. AccuLAR-122 can also be launched from srael Military Industries Lynx. After the acquisition of Israel Military Industries by Elbit Systems in 2018, an upgraded and modernized version of the Lynx was developed, called the PULS (Precise & Universal Launching System). The rocket can be mounted on PODS (18 rockets per POD) or launched as single rockets. Each launcher can fire 18 rockets within a minute. The AccuLAR can neutralize targets in areas where the use of traditional artillery is limited by terrain, distance and accuracy.
