Company Has Just Completed Delivery of Davids on a $23 Million Previous Order; Total Corporate Backlog Now at $35 Million

AUBURN, AL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/01/09 -- Arotech Corporation (NASDAQ: ARTX) announced today that its Armor Division has received orders valued at $2 million for its David Light Armored Vehicle. This order comes as the Company has completed delivery on a previous $23 million order of David vehicles and spare parts.

The David is a lightweight armored vehicle based on a Land Rover heavy duty Defender platform. The David has been selected by the Israel Defense Force (IDF) as its standard armored reconnaissance and patrol vehicle, and is operating hundreds of them already.

The David has been involved in numerous terror attacks, withstanding assault weapons and various explosive devices, saving the lives of its occupants.

The new order contributed to Arotech's corporate backlog, which now totals $35 million.

"The David has become a key product in MDT portfolio, and its success is clearly evident," said Robert Ehrlich, Arotech's Chairman and CEO. "We are now starting to market into markets outside of Israel."
