Colombia purchases the Israeli Barak MX air defence missile system

Colombia approved the purchase of the Israeli-made Barak MX air defence missile system produced by IAI (Israel Aerospace Industries) for an amount of $131.2 million.

The Israel Aerospace Industries has also offered the naval variant of the Barak MX to Colombia to equip five frigates the country plans to build locally under its PES program.

The Barak MX air defence missile system consists of three main components including the Battle Management Center (BMC), which creates and manages a unified multi-sensor aerial picture, coordinates the force operation networks, and manages the launch arrays. The land-based versions are available in the form of mobile, transportable, and stationary platforms.
