Brazil is in advanced negotiations with Israeli company Uvision in order to purchase some types of loitering weapon systems.

In January 2023 Argentina purchased two types of Uvisions’ loitering systems. A sources in the Israeli defence establishment told Zona Militar that negotiations are underway with other countries in south America.

“These systems create big interest in these countries that have learned about their capabilities”

The deal with Argentina includes the Hero-30 and the Hero – 120. The two loitering weapon systems will be used by the special units of the Argentine army

The Hero-30 is  a simple-to-operate system incorporating a high level of precision attack and abort capabilities, enabling infantry and special forces to initiate operations, as well as to respond to any enemy target or threat that arises, and eliminate it with extreme accuracy.

The Hero-30’s advanced capabilities include striking targets with high tracking precision and lock-on, a last-second mission-abort, and re-engagement for a second attack attempt or change of target. Its versatile installment configurations (man packed, vehicle mounted or stationary) make it ideally suited to a diverse range of operational scenarios.

The Hero-120 Loitering Munition System made by Uvision is a mid-range (+40KM) tank-killer system that meets the complex requirements of the modern battlefield, such as those seen in the course of recent combat events in Europe. The Hero-120 carries out pinpoint strikes against anti-armor, anti-material and anti-personnel targets, including tanks, vehicles, and other soft targets in populated urban areas. The system’s high-precision capabilities are enabled thanks to its unique aerodynamic structure.
