Thales delivers FZ rockets to the Mexican Armed Forces

Thales has supplied 70mm rockets to the Mexican Armed Forces in the framework of a contract signed between the Ministry of National Defense and FZ Forges de Zeebrugge S.A., a Thales local subsidiary. The rockets were delivered in May and fire tests were performed in July with a very positive customer evaluation.

This material consists basically of heads of practice and warheads to be equipped in the Mexican Air Force's EC725 Cougar helicopters.

This is the first Thales military equipment sold to the Mexican Armed Forces and it definitely states the beginning of a strong relationship with the Mexican government. We expect to increase the orders for this type of material and also other products from our vast defense portfolio and thus significantly increasing our participation in this market segment," declared Antonio Quintanilla, Country Director in Mexico.
