Brazil seeking exports sales for ALAC anti-armour weapon
Brazil’s privately run GESPI Defense Systems is in negotiations with several foreign countries to sell its 84 mm ALAC (Arma Leve Anti-Carro) man-portable shoulder-launched medium-range light anti-armour weapon system it developed in co-operation with the Brazilian Army’s Technological Center (CTEx), a company spokesperson told IHS Jane’s.
GESPI Defense Systems is in advanced negotiations with Mexico, which has requested 1,200 of the one-shot anti-armour weapon, and with Iraq, which is considering 2,000. Azerbaijan requested an initial tranche of 50 and is considering in-country manufacturing of additional units.
Preliminary discussions are being held with states such as with Indonesia and Portugal for possible sales.
