trophy APS ignored by US army.


Recommended Posts

If you read the links in my first post, Trophy is strictly an Israeli system. It is being mounted on Merkavas and will be mounted on the Strykers Israel is buying.

Israel offered the Trophy to the United States Army and we turned it down in favor of a similar product being developed -- but not nearly ready to field -- by Raytheon.

Boomerang has nothing to do with either. It's an acoustic system to pinpoint the source of sniper fire (the Israelis have a similar device that also is man-portable). Trophy is designed to destroy incoming ordnance.

From what I have read about slat armor, it will defeat RPGs but their fragments still can fly inside the "cage" and hit exposed crew members.
