The Rheinmetall group continues to equip German Marder 1A5 BMPs with the MELLS anti-tank missile system, reports bmpd.


German infantry fighting vehicle Marder 1A5, equipped with anti-tank missile complex MELLS (Spike-LR), during the test, 2017 year.

MELLS (Mehrrollenfähiges Leichtes Lenk fl ugkörpersystem) is an Israeli anti-tank missile system Spike-LR, assembled in Germany by the joint venture EuroSpike GmbH.

The contract for the integration of the MELLS (Spike-LR) ATGM on the Marder infantry combat vehicle with the aim of upgrading and extending the service life of the latter was concluded at the end of 2016. The transaction value was 35 million euros.

Two upgraded BMPs successfully passed the tests in the first half of 2017.

In December, 2017, Rheinmetall, supplied the 44 Bundeswehr with the MELLS series, which are currently equipped with 35 machines.

“Also, the new German BMP Puma should be equipped with the MELLS complex, although, according to a number of sources, the actual serial equipment of the Puma combat machines with this complex is expected only by 2024-2025 years,” the article says.

      Spike-LR - quite decent, tried and tested devices, especially those assembled in Germany by the joint venture EuroSpike GmbH. (I read somewhere that they and Diehl BGT Defense rivet under license). Almost 20 countries in the world are enjoying and quite satisfied. Reliability to 97% fit. I see dumping as Cornet for 20 000, not Spike for 200 000. hi

        Israelis have lobbied their ptrk in Germany!

        It would be better if we lobbied. Other than jokes.
        These missiles and modern means of detection put on any carrier will transform the latter into a modern anti-tank complex, even if it be a peasant cart (I exaggerate). fellow

          It can be put on a cart. Not 4, but only 2. Will it be enough?

            Spike can be installed absolutely on anything, even on a tank, even on a cart with horses. Moreover, in view of the long range, this is something that does not require any booking or special disguise.

                It is on the show and on parade. laughing
                In fact, they are either in the tube of the shoulder Mini-Spike, Spike-SR, or the tube on the Spike-MR tripod. The rest are heavy. They put on the car or something else. There reusable cassette. Although, I saw them on a simple external suspension by helicopter.

          We do not ride. Everything related to weapons should be its own, with a full production cycle, on its elemental base. We cannot depend on another state in the production of weapons.

      and the Jews ordered the Dolphin submarines from the Fritz 3. Another question is why they don’t order anything from a friendly Russia where they are in power, but because they have already stolen everything. Or received quietly. just as mudag Khrushchev sold the entire complex of buildings of the Mission of the Russian Orthodox Church in Jerusalem for 1 thousand tons of rotten orange

          I did not quite understand who your comment was, but for example I have practically nothing against the Jews.
