The PALM 400 - acronym for 'Precision Attack Loitering Munition' is a long-range, high-precision loitering munition system.
It is the result of a joint venture between AVision Systems (Israel), UVision Air Ltd, and Aditya Precitech Private Ltd (APPL).
It is built to fly over areas where armored vehicles are concentrated or are anticipated.
Each PALM 400 selects its targets when armored vehicles enter the kill zone and launch an armor-piercing projectile, penetrating it from the top where there is least protection.
It is created by AVision Systems, a joint venture between Israeli firm UVision Air Ltd and Hyderabad-based Aditya Precitech Private Ltd.
