    WARSAW ó A consortium of Israelís Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, the Polish Bumar Group and Northrop Grumman of the U.S. has won a $140 million contract to supply an air defense system to the Peruvian armed forces, Bumar said in a statement.

    Under the deal, Northrop will deliver three AN/TPS-78 radars with a range of 450 kilometers, and Rafael will supply Spyder short-range and medium-range surface-to-air systems fitted with Python 5 and Derby beyond-visual-range missiles. Bumar will deliver six Poprad self-propelled air defense systems and 150 Grom surface-to-air missile launchers with a range of 5.5 kilometers, the statement said.

    Why didn't Peru opt for El/M 2016 radar present in Indian and Singaporean SPYDER system ?

    EL/M-2016 and [*******#2C2C2C][FONT=Helvetica]AN/TPS-78 probably belong to different classes.

    AN/TPS-78 should be compared with EL/M-2082

    or EL/M-2288

    It isn't specified that the El/M 2106 radar is absent from the deal. SPYDER typically comprised the El/M-2106 and I believe that's the case for this deal as well. If I understand the article correctly, the Northrop AN/TPS-78 is to serve as long-range early-warning radar.

    Thanks, I just found coupling of a long range radar with a QRSAM system odd.
