In the news release, Raytheon, NIMR to integrate TALON laser guided rockets onto UAE ground vehicle, issued 24-Feb-2015 by Raytheon Company over PR Newswire, we are advised by the company of updated material listed in the full corrected version below:

UPDATED: Raytheon, NIMR to integrate TALON laser guided rockets, anti-tank missiles onto UAE ground vehicle

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Feb. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and NIMR Automotive, part of the Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC), are collaborating to equip NIMR armored vehicles with TALON™ Laser Guided Rockets.

Using the Raytheon remote weapons station, each vehicle will carry 16 TALON LGRs.

The RWS enables TALON to be fired from both stationary and moving vehicles, while an elevated sensor/designator enables the TALON to be fired from concealed positions ensuring lethality and survivability for the ground vehicle.

"Integration onto the NIMR vehicle further demonstrates the versatility of TALON," said Michelle Lohmeier, Raytheon vice president of Land Warfare Systems. "In partnership with EDIC, we are providing an affordable, near-term and reliable solution."

"The NIMR 6x6 tactical platform provides a range of modular system integration to support a full range of missions including armed reconnaissance, infrastructure defense, defensive fire suppression and border security," said Dr. Fahad Saif Harhara, NIMR CEO. "It can also support rapidly advancing infantry. The mobile and fixed firing modes enhance the vehicle's effectiveness and provide a significant advantage over existing heavy artillery.

About TALON

The TALON LGR is a low-cost, digital semi-active laser guidance and control kit co-developed with the United Arab Emirates. The TALON guidance section fits directly to the front of the legacy 2.75-inch Hydra-70 unguided rocket. TALON's architecture and ease of employment make it a low-cost, highly-precise weapon for missions in urban environments, as well as counter insurgency and swarming boat defense missions. TALON is fully compatible with existing airborne and ground laser designators.
