Czech Army to get new anti-aircraft defense system

The Czech Ministry of Defense has signed an agreement with the Israeli state company Rafael on the purchase of an anti-aircraft defense system worth 13.7 billion crowns. The defense system (SHORAD) is designed to protect cities, nuclear power plants, airports, industrial centers and other important facilities. It is used to detect and eliminate aircraft, drones, helicopters or guided missiles with a flat flight path. It will replace the Soviet KUB system.
