MBDA has received a contract from Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) for the integration of the Mistral ATAM anti-air missile system on the Korean Marine Attack Helicopter (KMAH).

According to Eric Béranger, CEO of MBDA, this contract cements Mistral ATAM’s place as a world-leading helicopter-launched anti-air missile system.

Mistral ATAM is based on the Mistral short-range anti-air missile, known for its fire-and-forget hostile target engagement mode, ease of operation, and high kill probability, as you can read in our article below.

The ATAM system includes two launchers per helicopter, each carrying two missiles. Man-portable Mistral air defence systems are also in service with many countries including the Republic of Korea’s Armed Forces as well as the National Guard in Cyprus.

MBDA and KAI are also working together to integrate the Meteor missile with Beyond Line Of Sight (BLOS) capability onto the KF-21 Boromae fighter aircraft.
