MMP fifth generation land combat missile system - MBDA




MMP is the latest (fifth) generation land combat missile system designed for dismounted infantry as well as for integration on combat vehicles. Featuring both fire-and-forget and man-in-the-loop operation, network-enabled MMP also receives third party target designation for indirect firing scenarios. MMP is fitted with a Multi Purpose Warhead with excellent “weight over efficiency” ratio. The high penetration of MMP tandem warhead allows destruction of all target set including modern MBT overprotected with latest generation ERA. MMP will replace the Milan and Javelin anti-tank missiles in service with the French Army and special forces from 2017. Taking into account the battle experience gained from recent conflicts in which the French Army has been engaged, MMP is a response to the demands that have been expressed in terms of required capabilities: firing from confined spaces, “fire-and-forget”, and self-guidance with a “man-in-the-loop” facility.
