The EXTRA EXTended Range Artillery is an artillery rocket system developed and manufactured by Israel Military Industries IMI and used by Israel Defense Forces, Azerbaijan and Vietnam since 2013.[2][6] It has a maximum range of 150km with a 120kg unitary warhead and accuracy of 10m CEP.[7][8][9]

The EXTRA missiles can be launched by IMI’s LYNX (MRL) launcher, as well as from a variety of other available launchers.[10]

The ship launched version is called TRIGON.[11]

IMI developed an air launched version of the missile,[12] originally called MARS.[13] The air-launched version has been renamed Rampage, it will enter series production in 2019.[14]
