This contract follows on from Thailand’s initial purchase of STARStreak in 2012.

The system comprises STARStreak missiles, the world’s fastest very short range air defence (VSHORAD) missile and Lightweight Multiple Launcher (LML). The LML tripod-based system allows swift deployment of STARStreak missile to deal with attacks from low-level fighter aircraft, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs) and attack helicopters. The system plays a key part in the air defence forces continued commitment to protecting the Kingdom of Thailand.

Victor Chavez, CEO of Thales in the UK, said: “STARStreak is the leading VSHORAD system in the world today, enabling nations to protect key assets against both emerging and established threats. We are honored to continue to serve the Royal Thai Army as a key supplier for Thailand’s advanced air defence capability.”

STARStreak can be seen on display at DSEI on the Thales stand (S6-110).

Key points

• A multi-million pound contract with Royal Thai Army.
• Thales to supply STARStreak missiles and Lightweight Multiple Launchers.

Notes to editors
The STARStreak missile operates at a speed in excess of Mach 3 to defeat fast-moving threats and those with short unmasking times. The three-dart ‘hittile’ configuration maximises lethality and the highly-accurate laser beam riding guidance enables engagement of low-signature targets and is immune to all known countermeasures.
