Germany secures a historic billion-euro deal for Israeli Arrow 3 hypersonic missile systems.

In a monumental development for European defense, Germany has officially signed a landmark deal to acquire the cutting-edge Israeli-made Arrow 3 hypersonic missile system. This acquisition marks a pivotal moment in Europe’s quest to fortify its air defenses against potential aerial threats.

The historic signing ceremony was attended by German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius and his Israeli counterpart, Yoav Gallant, who jointly hailed this significant occasion.

Unprecedented Investment in European Defense

Valued at approximately $3.5 billion (3.3 billion euros), this agreement stands as the largest deal ever inked by Israel’s military industry.

The Arrow 3 missile system, heralded as the harbinger of future air defense capabilities for Germany, holds the promise of enhanced security and preparedness in the face of evolving threats.

Germany, spearheading the charge to bolster the air defenses of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) across Europe, has been fervently advocating for allied nations to unite in procuring deterrence systems collectively.

The urgency of such measures has been underscored by the relentless Russian aggression in Ukraine, which has starkly illuminated the imperative need for robust anti-air defenses.
