On February 22, EXCALIBUR ARMY signed an agreement with the Indonesian company PT REPUBLIK DEFENSINDO on the joint production of RM-70 Vampire rocket launchers in Indonesia. Production of rocket launchers will begin this year. The project is a continuation of the cooperation between the two companies and follows on from the supply of Czech RM-70 Vampire rocket launchers for the Indonesian Armed Forces in recent years.

As part of the IDEX 2021 trade fair, a contract between EXCALIBUR ARMY and PT REPUBLIK DEFENSINDO (PT.
