Israeli firm to supply gun system to U.S. Navy


JERUSALEM (JTA) —  An Israeli defense company will supply the United States Navy with a remote-controlled naval gun system.

Rafael Advanced Defense Systems won a U.S. Navy tender to supply $48 million of its Mini-Typhoon anti-terror gun stations, the Israeli business daily Globes reported.
The U.S. Navy already uses larger Typhoon systems made by Rafael. Several navies around the world also use the Mini-Typhoon.

Rafael beat out several major international companies to receive the tender, according to Globes.
