Jaguar EBRC qualification process includes MMP test-firing
The test was conducted on 14 April in conjunction with French defence procurement agency DGA as part of the qualification process for Jaguar.
‘Launched from the retractable pod on the Jaguar’s turret in two-missile configuration, the MMP successfully hit its target,’ MBDA stated on 11 May. Integration of MMP with Jaguar EBRC is being carried out in stages during qualification, with firing as the first stage to demonstrate that the missile can hit a fixed target.
‘During this demonstration, the Optrolead PASEO battlefield surveillance sight interfaced with the missile system, offering real-time optronic acquisition by day and by night. This gives the Jaguar excellent long-range observation and identification capabilities,’ MBDA noted.
MMP is designed to be deployed from a firing post by infantry or as a turret-mounted medium-range ATGM system, according to Shephard Defence Insight.
