This new new naval offering based on the MMP was first unveiled at Euronaval 2018, following an operational evaluation campaign carried out in the summer of 2018 by the French special forces in Djibouti.
The campaign confirmed the reliability and operational performance of the MMP system in a hot environment, both from the ground and also from a rigid hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) moving at high speed.
A total of nine MMP missiles were fired with all reaching their target. Two of these shots were fired by the maritime force of marines and commandos from a ECUME RHIB. A first firing from the sea-to- land and the second from sea-to-sea have demonstrated the ease of use of the MMP.
The success of this evaluation allowed MBDA to extend the integration perspectives of the MMP system and to propose it on fast attack craft or semi-rigid boats for missions against hostile ships, coastal defenses or armored vehicles, especially in support of a landing of small units or Special Forces.
In addition to the MMP model, MBDA is showcasing a simulator allowing visitors to test the quad-launcher turreted variant against targets at sea and on land.
