Thales Telson 22 system utilizes 68 mm rockets and is based upon wireless communication technology. The solution is being utilized by the French Army, including the special operations component. It is also a system that has been combat-proven (in Afghanistan, Libya, Mali and in the Central African Republic).
TELSON rocket system is NATO compliant, when it comes to its tactical applications. It is also compatible with the guided and unguided ACULEUS warheads.
Following the preliminary negotiation, Thales and the Polish Air Force Institute of Technology (ITWL) have come to a conclusion that the modernization-integration experience gathered by ITWL during the process of upgrading the W-3PL Głuszec platform would make it possible to equip a demo example of Mi-24 with the 68 mm TELSON rocket system. The equipment of the helicopter would also become compatible with other armament, including laser-guided missiles.
A mock-up of the proposed solution, presented in a form of the Thales Telson launcher under a wing of the Mi-24W helicopter, within the stand of the WZL No. 1 facility, is a part of the exhibition belonging to the PGZ Group.
