Greece considers Rafaels SPYDER anti aircraft system offer 1

Greece is considering purchasing Rafael's SPYDER anti-aircraft system to upgrade its air defenses.

The SPYDER system can detect and intercept a wide range of aerial threats, including aircraft, helicopters, and drones. It uses a combination of Python-5 and Derby missiles, which have a "lock-on after launch" capability. The system can be customized to fit various radar types and command and control systems. Its modular design allows for the deployment of two versions: SPYDER-SR for short-range threats and SPYDER-MR for medium-range threats.
