MBDA Missile Systems is proud to support the 2022 Special Forces Industry Conference taking place in Tampa, Florida May 16-19, 2022. In cooperation with MBDA Germany, we will be featuring our fully interactive and immersive simulation of ENFORCER’s capabilities for only the second time in the US. Also being exhibited at SOFIC 2022 will be the MMP guided weapons system scheduled to replace the Milan and Javelin anti-tank missiles currently in service with the French army and special forces.
The ENFORCER trainer utilizes virtual reality goggles paired with a mock-up of ENFORCER with the exact same size, weight and center of gravity as the actual Enforcer weapon system. The virtual reality simulator provides a range of simulated combat environments with an accurate representation of the weapon’s targeting and optics system.
Enforcer is a complimentary multipurpose munition to existing shoulder-fired infantry weapon systems. It enables dismounted infantry to engage lightly protected battlefield/urban targets at relevant combat ranges, with high precision and minimal exposure to the operator.
Enforcer provides major advantages for infantry and special forces:
- Can be carried and operated by a single soldier from behind cover as well as in enclosed and confined spaces. Minimal exposure to enemy fire.
- Designed for use against a wide range of static and moving targets, including concealed snipers. Superior range and effect compared to automatic grenade and rocket launchers.
- Capability against soft-skinned and lightly armored targets, and Infrastructure. Low collateral damage weapon.
MMP is the latest (fifth) generation land combat missile system designed for dismounted infantry as well as for integration on combat vehicles. The weapon’s effectiveness has also been proven on small naval craft.
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 has a multi-purpose warhead with a selectable choice of anti-armor or anti-infrastructure modes.
MMP’s design includes the growth potential necessary for a future family of missiles for modern land combat.
MMP will replace the Milan and Javelin anti-tank missiles in service with the French Army and special forces from 2017. Considering 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 such as: firing from confined spaces, “fire-and-forget”, and self-guidance with a “man-in-the-loop” facility.
If you are attending SOFIC, MBDA’s booth is #552 so please come by and join us to see mock-ups of both weapons and to talk to experts on both of these weapon systems.
