Berta ground launch aerial target system

System purpose

The system is designed for round-the-clock aerial electrooptic surveillance and fulfils the following functions:

  • Aerial target system E08M is designed for troop training and deployment (trials) of air defence systems.
  • The target is a simulator of evading targets such as remotely-piloted aerial vehicles, cruising controlled air bombs, aircraft shaped missiles and, in certain cases, airplanes and helicopters of tactical and army aviation.
  • The system is transported with two ground vehicles mounted on a cross-country chassis.
  • KUNG type vehicle houses a GCS with antenna system providing control of the target flight, CDP, other additional equipment, spare parts, tools and accessories.
  • The launching unit is a single-axle trailer, towed by one of the ground vehicles of the system.
