Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) released a video on Tuesday unveiling a new ballistic anti-ship missile that can strike a target at both close and long range.
IAI announced on Twitter that it had successfully tested its new precision-guided tactical missile, which is able to hit a target at ranges of both 399 km (248 miles) and 90 km (56 miles).
The Long Range Artillery Weapon System (LORA) is a land-to-sea weapon system meant to respond to a ballistic assault with a precision strike within 30 feet of the target. The missile in the Tuesday experiment was launched from sea.
