: Feb 6, 2020 - : 2:00 pm

L&T MBDA Missile Systems Ltd is offering Exocet MM40 Block 3 for the Indian Navy’s Medium Range Anti-Ship Missile (MRAShM) requirement.

Exocet MM40 Block 3 is the latest version of the Exocet missile already in service with the Indian Armed Forces, which has improved electronics and an extended range.

The joint venture company is also proposing its next-generation Sea Ceptor system for the Indian Navy’s Short-Range Surface to Air Missile (SRSAM) requirement.

Sea Ceptor utilises the CAMM missile that features a next generation all-weather RF-seeker, two-way datalink and soft-vertical launch system to provide a step-change in performance compared with previous generation systems able to protect India vessels from attacks from fast sea-skimming missiles attacking from multiple directions simultaneously.

“Sea Ceptor is the most high-performance and modern air defence system on the market, while also providing easy platform integration and many space, weight and safety benefits compared with older systems,” a company official says.

MBDA also has a full spectrum of missile systems to meet all the arming requirements of naval helicopters.

For long-range requirements MBDA’s famous and combat proven Exocet AM 39 missile is available, Marte ER provides excellent extended medium range capability, while Sea Venom / ANL provides unrivalled fire-and-forget or operator above the loop ability to engage multiple targets at short to medium ranges in open waters or even challenging littoral environments.

For the Indian Navy’s special forces ATGM5, L&T MBDA Missile Systems Ltd is “offering the world’s only true 5th Generation Anti-Tank Missile as an Indian Designed Developed and Manufactured (IDDM) product under the Make in India programme,” he says.

ATGM5 offers many unique capabilities, including being truly network enabled, a multipurpose warhead with selecteable effects, and high-performance seeker technologies. It is proven for use in the maritime environment from small special forces vessels, he adds.

MBDA has been supporting India’s armed forces for over 50 years, providing over 40,000 missiles built in India during this time, and is working through its Indian joint venture – L&T MBDA Missile Systems Ltd – to deliver new Make in India programmes and provide new enhancements for the Indian Navy’s fighting potency.
