MMP is the latest (fifth) generation land combat missile system designed for dismounted infantry as well as for integration on combat vehicles. The weapon can destroy small naval craft as well.

MMP will replace the Milan and Javelin anti-tank missiles in service with the French Army and Special Forces from 2017.

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 the selectable choice of anti-armor of anti-infrastructure modes.
