      Rafael to sign $250 million deal with Polish army

      By Amnon Barzilay, Haaretz Correspondent - Dec 28, 2003

      A delegation of senior Defense Ministry officials, headed by the
      ministry's director general Amos Yaron will leave Sunday for Poland
      to sign a deal with the Polish army for the sale of anti-tank
      missiles manufacture by the Rafael Armament Development Authority.

      The Polish defense minister will attend the signing ceremony that
      will be held Monday in Warsaw.

      The $250 million deal will complete negotiations approved a year ago
      by the by the Polish and Israeli governments. Under the deal, Rafael
      will provide the Polish army with Spike missiles, which are also used
      by the Israel Defense Forces.

      The Spike missile has a four to six kilometer range. It can be
      shoulder-launched or assembled on vehicles.

      The Defense Ministry approved the supply of information and transfer
      of technology on development of the missile to Polish defense
      industries. In the future, Poland will be able to export the Rafael-
      produced missiles, along with Israel, to other countries.

      Rafael sells Spike missiles to the Dutch and Finnish armies as well,
      and aims to make its anti-tank missiles the standard missile for the
      militaries of countries belonging to NATO.

      The deal to be signed on Monday will bring the scope of Rafael's
      sales in 2003 to $900 million, a company record.
