They encompass not only system solutions for air-to-ground 70mm unguided conventional rockets. The Laser Guided Rocket FZ275 LGR will also be showcased, eyeing the requirements of different helicopter programs in South Africa.

The advantage of the laser guidance is its precision to minimise collateral damage. FZ275 LGR will reach a hit-target ability with less than one meter (CEP<1m). Due to the Joint Fire Support Team marking the target, even moving vehicles progressing at a speed up to 60km/h can be destroyed.

The maximum operational range for laser guided rocket FZ275LGR is roughly 6 km.

FZ has a longstanding footprint in South Africa and is recognised as a trusted partner of the South Africa Air force (SAAF) supplying the rocket system on Denel Rooivalk AH-2 (M159 rocket launcher and ammunition).

In October 2015, FZ successfully test fires its FZ275 LGR Laser Guided Rocket onboard South-African (SAAF) Rooivalk helicopter with the support of Armscor, Denel Overberg Test Range and other partners.
