The Ministry of Defence announced the signing of an Agreement with Source Vagabond and Marom Dolphin for the procurement of personal protective equipment. The agreement was signed on June 29, 2022, at the Ministry of Defence. On behalf of the Cypriot and Israeli Ministries of Defence, the Agreement was signed by the General Director, Andreas Loukas, and the General Director of the Directorate for International Defence Cooperation (SIBAT), Mr. Yair Kulas, respectively.

In his greeting, the Minister of Defence, Mr. Charalambos Petridis, stressed that the constant goal of the Ministry of Defence is the quality upgrade of the capabilities of the National Guard with modern equipment so as to be a reliable deterrent force. The needs of the Active Duty personnel will initially be met followed by the needs of the reservists.

He stressed that the need to replace the tactical protection gear is essential for the fighter’s survivability and hence that was deemed necessary. He also pointed out that this is the first time that a wide range of complete protective equipment (i.e combat vests, helmets etc) is purchased for the majority of the personnel.
