It has been reported that Elbit Systems intends to take over Mikal, the company controlling Soltam inc, Israeli producer of artillery and armour, among other products. Elbit already has a stake in Mikal.
Like Elbit, Soltam has deep connections in the IDF.
Mikal companies are export oriented and focus on NATO compliant military hardware and military systems.
Mikal subsidiary Global CST capitalises on the experience of Israeli ‘security’ forces and the IDF in maintaining the occupation of Palestine to sell security services abroad. The company sells SWAT team technology and riot control technology based on experience gained in Palestine.
