Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defence Systems’ SPICE bomb became a household name after the 2019 Balakot strike when the Indian Air Force used it to target a terrorist hideout in Pakistan.

At the Aero India show earlier this month, Rafael unveiled a new variant of its air to surface weapon system–SPICE250 ER–with a mini turbo jet engine that gives it standoff capability. Rafael also signed a pact with the Hyderabad-based Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) for the joint induction of an anti torpedo defence system.

According to Eli Hefets, corporate regional director, India, of Rafael Advance Defence Systems, the pact with BDL entails advanced technology transfer and the use of indigenous content sourced from India.
