The Lebanese Army demonstrated their newly received TOW-II missile launchers Wednesday at a military base in the Bekaa Valley in a show of force as it prepares to engage militants on Lebanon's border. U.S. Ambassador David Hale attended the event and Gen. Maroun Hitti represented the Army's commander Gen. Jean Kahwagi. In the second demonstration a tank took two attempts at hitting its target.TOW technology is nothing new to the Lebanese Army; it has been using TOW-I missiles since 1982 .While the Army may not have needed training on the TOW missiles, an American private defense consultancy company, Raytheon, which manufactures the TOW missiles, has been training the Lebanese Armed Forces.
