The French launched an anti-tank missile from a module mounted on an SUV

31

The French company MBDA, together with the French Armed Forces and the DGA Purchasing Agency, carried out regular tests. During them, the French launched an MMP medium-range anti-tank missile from a remotely controlled strike module mounted on a 4x4 SUV.


The tests took place at the Kanger army training ground in the south of France.

The rocket was launched in the “fire and forget” mode. The fire was conducted at an armored vehicle from a distance of 3,5 kilometers. The target was successfully hit.

In addition to testing a new missile, the firing also marked the end of the development phase of the 250-kg MMP Precision Attack integrated combat module, which MBDA has created for light armored vehicles.

In recent months, the manufacturer has conducted a large number of tests on its MMP rocket and related products. The company's management positions it weapon as a "destroyer tanks»For the French and other European military.

It is assumed that it will be suitable for use not only by ground means, but can also be launched from board a ship or helicopter.

In earlier tests of the MMR rocket, the launch was carried out from a closed position, and the guidance was carried out using a microdron.

    An excellent complex, for me the best in the world. It's a shame for us, we don't even have such a close

      SHOCK! Sensation! The French have invented the "Baby" ATGM on the BRDM!

            The original design, the dawn of motorism. See, Balaganov, what can be done from a simple Singer sewing machine? A small adaptation - and it turned out a lovely collective farm sheaves.

          As I understand it, it was said above about installing an ATGM module on mobile equipment. The conversation is not about the ATGM generations.

          By the way, in the Roman Empire, both eastern and western, war chariots were not used for warfare. At the theater where VRI fought, they disappeared one and a half thousand years before. Here is a good work on this subject, for example: The End of The Bronze Age: Changes in Warfare and the Catastrophe ca. 1200 BC Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1993.

        To be honest, I also wanted to answer the first post, but after reading the data, I didn't feel like it. http://bastion-karpenko.ru/mmp/ I did not find any data on armor penetration, except that the warhead is tandem. The characteristics described are impressive, and the number of test sites amazes with the pickiness of their choice and "cause concern" that the tests were carried out at low temperatures - in Vidsel, at -30 Celsius. Combat use was in Afghanistan. Also impressed by the defeat of the target at a distance of 5 km, with the declared characteristics of 4,1 km.

          ATGM Spike NLOS has a range of 25 km. This kind of data is actually impressive.

            It's like comparing the Igloo to the Buk. Compared to the Spike-LR.

        Perhaps he meant that the rocket hits the target from top to bottom. Yes, we really don't have such a thing yet. Another thing is that with the cornet's armor penetration, he doesn't really need this.
        But I did not find the data on how many millimeters the MMP takes. I wonder if there is even a meter there?

          Well, there is still a difference in operational use. MMR, Spikes and other 3rd generation anti-tank systems can destroy targets invisible from the position. By the way, MMP has a function of detecting and capturing targets in flight on a teleautomat.

          Roughly speaking:
          - The cornet can only work for line of sight. It is to expose oneself to the answer or it is banal not to be able to hit the technique hiding or concentrating behind a hill or shaft.

          - ATGM of the 3rd generation is capable of destroying such targets, out of line of sight.

          Unfortunately, the military-industrial complex and thematic corporations cannot yet demonstrate anything in this direction. Although the same Spikes are already more than 10 years old, they have devoured the markets, displacing Rosoboronexport as well, and have shown themselves well in numerous conflicts of recent years.

          Not only, it is possible to use "on the forehead". In addition, in-flight retargeting is possible.

        Yes, only in the RF Armed Forces, this is, at best, a Cornet of generation 3, and for the French it is 5. Shot, forgot, they have, we have a laser trail. And so all is well.

        French ATGMs do not need advertising. They are really the best at the moment. In second place I would put Israel, 3 USA. We are not on this list at all, which is very upsetting!

            Comedians stubbornly practiced when on the other end of the Maidan and played democracy. Here is the result. For some, it turned out to be deplorable, but for others it was funny.

        Judging by the video - Israeli kamikaze IAI Harop

        IAI Harop is a brigade UAV. The device has a working radius of 1000 km. The Harop operators are far from the theater of war. They mainly work on enemy air defense systems.
        In the video, the battalion ATGM Spike. They are usually launched from a car or from stationary tripods. There are also manual PUs.

    The system fired-forgotten, a good system, but not confirmed by several external factors, the lack of technical opposition to the enemy and weather factors, guidance systems (head) do not always cope in these conditions. I personally took apart the heads of the ATGM (shots) after the shooting. Nature greatly influences the way these systems work. Including systems of GHz surveillance systems on the battlefield in conditions of physical-atmospheric interference. Everything is learned in comparison at - 40 as in 41g in WWII
