Germany is in no hurry to sign an agreement on the purchase of Israeli PULS rocket launchers

Despite the information that appeared several months ago regarding military-technical cooperation between Israel and Germany, Germany is not yet in a hurry to sign an agreement on the purchase of Israeli PULS rocket systems.

The Polish portal Defense 24 drew attention to this.



Journalists recall that the German side expressed its interest in these weapons. They suggest that the reason for the delay lies in Germany's typical excessive bureaucracy.

Last year, the French portal Meta Defense reported that Germany intended to purchase five Israeli PULS MLRS from the Netherlands. Amsterdam decided to order 20 of these installations from Israel, and Berlin expressed a desire to buy five of them from the Dutch.

Previously, Germany transferred five MARS II rocket systems to Ukraine and now intends to purchase other installations to replace those supplied to Kyiv. The transferred systems are American-made multi-purpose MLRS M270 MLRS adapted for European consumers.

But to date, Berlin has not yet taken any practical steps to acquire equipment.

PULS multiple launch rocket systems are produced by the Israeli company Elbit System. This is a high-precision mobile complex capable of firing various types of ammunition at a distance of up to 300 kilometers. The launcher is equipped with two tubes where missiles of various types are installed.

    But not...
    It’s just that they’ve already spent all their pennies on the boys.

    I didn’t understand something ...
    What is all this cunning castling for? Buy for the sake of buying? For the sake of "military-technical cooperation"? Since when has Germany been unable to make its own MLRS? And Jews too - they don’t have a lot of resources, but they have brains with diplomas from Baumanka and MIPT. We could do it ourselves.
    If all this is to see each other “how it works there,” then they wouldn’t muddy the waters. We would exchange drawings and business...
    Some kind of confusing “collaboration”...

      Germany is integrated into a large arms market. The vast majority of countries purchase certain types of weapons or acquire assembly lines. It is often more economical to purchase. There is a waiting list for highmars for many years to come. Pulse is a cheaper and more versatile alternative with a not yet overloaded portfolio of orders. Moreover, it allows you to use the same missile pods as Haymars and M270 MLRS

    Have you noticed the general trend of transforming MLRS into multi-purpose, multi-caliber missile systems?
    And a thought came to me regarding our MLRS. If we unify them and divide them into 2 groups.
    Lightweight chassis - based on an armored Kamaz 8x8 or Ural-Tornado 6x6. Batch launcher, uses Grad, TOS-2, Agriculture shells, new Uragan shells (increased range and adjustable).
    Heavy chassis - Voshchina 8x8, also a packaged PU, uses new Uragan and Smerch guided projectiles + develop new larger caliber projectiles with a range of 350-400 km (minimum), several pieces in a package, so to speak, to complement the Iskanders.
