Test footage of the MML (Multi-Mission Launcher)
The short-range air defense system is equipped with several types of ammunition at once: guided missiles Stinger, Hellfire, AIM-9x, as well as Tamir anti-missile missiles of the Israeli air defense system “Iron Dome“.
The MML (Multi-Mission Launcher) is a new generation of near-range ground-based missile defense/anti-aircraft defence (air defense/anti-missile defense) systems.
The MML is built on the principle of open architecture. Depending on the means of destruction it can be used to destroy unmanned aerial vehicles, cruise missiles, unguided rockets and artillery shells, mortars. As part of an echelonized air defense / missile defense system, the MML launcher is capable of providing all-round defense during a massive raid using various means of artillery and air attack.
The development of the MML is the result of the IFPC-2I (Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2) program aimed at developing means of protecting troops from closed firing positions. It was performed at the U.S. Army AMRDEC (Aviation And Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center) using the experience gained from the unification of HIMARS and Avenger SAM systems.
