Elbit Systems of Australia has closed out the successful delivery phase of the Land 125 Phase 3C contract supplying XACTth65 thermal weapon sights to the Australian Defence Force (ADF). The Maintenance phase of Land 125 continues until mid-2020.

Since delivery commenced in September 2016, nearly 4,800 XACTth65 thermal sights have been supplied to the Australian Army with early indications suggesting good reliability of the systems delivered.

“Personnel who have been issued with the thermal sight have been giving us extremely positive feedback about the sight’s effectiveness and ease of use,” commented Cathie Webb, Elbit Systems of Australia’s Land 125 Project Manager.

Dan Webster, Managing Director of Elbit Systems of Australia, said, “The success of the contract was another important aspect of the Company’s strategic partnership with the Army and the ADF more broadly. Technology is moving very quickly right across our very diverse offering, and weapon sights are no exception. The th65 thermal sight is just the beginning of the role technology will play in sighting systems, with the integration of sight data into the Battle Management System likely to be the next step.”
