Elbit To Supply Arms to Unnamed African Country

Elbit Systems, Israel’s largest arms company, has announce that it has received a contract to supply Soltam self propelled artillery to an unnamed African country. Included would be command stations, observation and target acquisition systems, and fire control and command and control systems.

The equipment supplied might be like this.

It isn’t clear which is the ‘African country’ receiving these weapons. But almost certainly it will be a country ill able to afford weapons, and they will eventually used in a conflict facilitated by the international arms the combattants are able to purchase.
