The French army received a new generation of ATGM 5

29
The French armed forces received new fifth-generation multipurpose missiles. According to the portal armyrecognition.com, MBDA delivered the first batch of MMP ATGMs to the French army.


MMP (Missile Moyenne Portée - medium-range missiles) are developed by MBDA with 2011 of the year, and in 2013, the manufacturer and the French Defense Ministry signed a contract for the supply of 2850 missiles and 400 launchers of the French army. 12 launchers and 50 missiles were shipped within a previously agreed schedule.

The French army received a new generation of ATGM 5


According to the technical description, the MMP missiles belong to the fifth-generation ground combat complexes with a combined-type guidance system, including a heat and television homing head, an inertial system and having the ability to be guided over an optical fiber cable. This will allow launching from closed positions, retargeting missiles during flight, as well as performing complex maneuvers during their flight to the target.

The maximum range of MMP missiles is 4,1 km. In the arsenal of the French army, new missiles should replace the ATGM Milan (used since 1972) and the American Javelin. In the future, the MBDA plans to create MMP missile launchers for armored vehicles and aviation. In addition, the company is engaged in the development of “older brothers” MMP - MLP and MHP missiles, which have a similar control and homing system, but with a longer range, reports "Warspot"

    Interestingly, and the Indians have not yet been interested in these ATGMs? wink

      They simply killed us by the fifth generation. Or didn’t I understand? The third-time fenders, we have the second generation ... The frog-fenders already ...

        And they have their own system for classifying ATGM generations. wassat

          Not certainly in that way. This ATGM of the third generation, but with a multi-mode GOS. When adding a new mode, they add a "generation".

            Everything is very arbitrary and in the classification of other generations (everyone can figure out how much they like). But in fact, the French by TTX of this complex is now ahead of everyone.

              Not all. In addition to all that the French ATGM has at Spike, there is the possibility of laser illumination of the target, a function useful in battles in urban areas. Yes, and Spike hits 5,5 km ...

                Spike is worse than MMP. The Frenchman has more modes, the mass is less and the maximum range in the "heavy versions" is greater. Laser illumination .. here the matter is debatable, it becomes painfully noticeable.

                  Worse and better applicable to technology.

                  MMP: range 4000 m, weight 15 kg, caliber 0.14 m, length 1.3 meters. Single-mode tandem warhead.
                  Spike: range 5500 m (10 000 m in the air version), weight 12.7 kg, caliber 0.17 m, length 1.6 meters. Tandem warhead multi-mode (multipurpose blast warhead with selectable impact or penetration detonation fusing).

                  MMP three modes: shot-forgot, shot-pointed-forgot, shot-pointed.
                  Spike the same modes plus a three-mode GSN, the French have 2's mode.

                  The IMF is in the arsenal of the French, Spike has dozens of armies, plus a bunch of combat use.

                  And the most interesting. MMP has a unmasking laser range finder.

                  PS
                  Talk about the "heavy" Spike with a range of 30 km? wink

    If spike and javelin belong to the third generation, then what is the fourth generation? How can I jump over the generation by creating a 4+ complex at best?

    Yes-ah-ah ... And we suffer with "cliffs", and risk shooting from open positions.

    Is it not possible, with modern technology, at least to “smash” the “launcher” and the arrow?
    After all, it seems, even at the "antediluvian" "Baby", a similar scheme was partially implemented ...

      It would be better if YOUR nomenclature did not participate in the scandal with Matilda, but would engage in state-important affairs.

    Analogue of "Spike", but why the 5th generation?
