German lawmakers approved on Wednesday a $600 million military deal to lease several Heron TP drones manufactured by "Israel" Aerospace Industries [IAI], part of a deal with the Zionist entity estimated at roughly a billion dollars.
IAI confirmed the agreement was signed with Airbus to lease the company's Heron TP Medium Altitude Long Endurance [MALE] RPASs [remotely piloted air vehicle system] to Germany's Federal Ministry of Defense pending approval of the German federal budget, which is expected in the second half of 2018.
Under the nine-year deal, Airbus DS Airborne Solutions GmbH will serve as the prime contractor responsible for managing all aspects of the project, including operational support and maintenance throughout the term of the agreement.
In this regard, Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commended the German government and parliament for approving the deal, stating that he discussed it with German Chancellor Merkel during their latest meeting in Berlin last week.
