IMI offers Mars missile for multiple fighters

Israel Military Industries (IMI) has identified a variety of combat aircraft types as potential host platforms for its Mars precision-guided weapon, which is expected to offer a roughly 54nm (100km) strike range.

Suitable for use against fixed targets such as radar sites, communications centres, weapons storage facilities and airfields, plus mobile threats, the GPS-guided Mars design is 4.4m (14.4ft) long and has a launch weight of 500kg (1,100lb).

IMI's Rocket Systems Division, which has been developing the Mars system for several years, says the missile could be customised for carriage by the Boeing F-15 and F/A-18, Eurofighter Typhoon, Israel Aerospace Industries Kfir, Lockheed Martin F-16 and Sukhoi Su-24, Su-25 and Su-27/30.
