The Israel Military Industries has been able to greatly improve the efficiency of its MPR-500 guided missiles, Ynet learned Monday.
According to the IMI,
the projectile is now a "bunker buster"
capable of penetrating double-reinforced concrete walls and floors 200mm thick.

The shell's accuracy minimized its damage to a radius of two-three meters – unlike other bombs, which leave more extensive damage in their wake.
The MPR-500 missile weighs 250Kg and can be carried by IAF jets. Unlike other projectile, it does not break apart upon impact.
Recent testing has proven that the shell can easily penetrate bunkers and deeply hidden underground weapon caches.
