French Armed Forces Receive First MMP

Programme sees delivery of 400 firing posts & 1,750 missiles by 2025

The French procurement agency DGA has accepted delivery of the first batch of 50 missiles and 20 firing posts from the new MMP system for the French Armed Forces with deliveries conducted 15-23 November.

The new system will gradually replace MILAN, HOT missiles mounted on VAB Armoured Fighting Vehicles and ERYX for some of these missiles. It will be issued to French Army infantry and cavalry units, and to Special Forces of the Army, Navy and Air Force. The MMP programme will see the delivery of 400 firing posts and 1,750 missiles across all of the French Armed Forces by 2025. First deliveries will be used to train future users, while it will be deployed in operations in the course of 2018.

The DGA, which awarded MBDA the MMP contract in 2013, qualified the system last July, clearing the way for serial production. The government ran techno-operational trials at the DGA’s test centre in Bourges from August to October 2017, with the assistance of operational experts from the Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre (STAT).
