NEW ARMAMENTS: IFF and KORNET-E supplies for the Greek armed forces - GEOPOLITIKI.COM

Greece’s Deputy Minister of Defense Alkiviadis Stefanis informed, on Tuesday, the members of the Committee on Armament Programs and Contracts of the Greek Parliament on two issues that received a positive opinion.

In particular, it concerns:

  • Activation of a program “Supply of Directed Missiles A-T-KORNET-E”, for the benefit of the Land Forces.
  • Activation of a program “Integration of IFF MODE 5 into RADAR systems of the Aviation Control System”, for the benefit of the Air Force.

The IFF MODE 5 system is a system for identifying friendly and enemy forces, which is used in possible military operations to avoid friendly losses and to distribute forces correctly.

Kornet-E is a Russian anti-tank system of long-range guided missiles with, 152mm calibre. Greece completed the receipt of the first order in 2002 and are operational in the Greek Army.
