Ares, a Brazilian subsidiary of Israeli Elbit Systems, delivered its latest batch of 99 units of the Model 2 Mortar Indirect Fire Aiming System (Spotim M2) for 81 mm mortars to the Brazilian Army, Spanish website Defensa.com reported.

According to Ares Project Manager and head of the optical line, Daenny Telles do Nascimento, there is an expectation of selling 670 units of the product in the next 5 years. “We have already delivered more than 175 units and we are currently working on a new demand of 101 units.”
