Greece will receive the deadly anti-ship missile, Exocet for its Rafale jets and FDI frigates besides several naval and air-launched missiles as per two contracts signed between France and Greece on February 24.

The first contract will supply the ASTER 30 B1 area air defence and MM40 Exocet Block 3C anti-ship missiles for three Defence and Intervention Frigates (FDI HN) – plus an optional additional frigate.

The second contract will supply weaponry for six additional Rafale combat aircraft. This follows on from the contract signed in January 2021 for the weaponry for 18 Rafale aircraft. The additional six aircraft will be equipped with the same weapons package: the Meteor beyond visual range air-to-air missile, the SCALP cruise missile, the MICA multi-mission air-to-air missile, and the AM39 Exocet anti-ship missile.

Companies in the Greek defence industry will be involved in the realisation of these contracts, as well as in the missiles’ follow-on support phase.
