As a response to the Spanish Ministry of Defence’s requirements, MBDA will modernize existing ATLAS VSHORAD missile launchers of Spanish Armed Forces to ATLAS-RC remotely-controlled configuration.

This new system is based on a remotely controlled turret, equipped with two ready-to-fire MISTRAL missiles and a latest generation thermal sight, capable of being mounted on 4×4 light armoured vehicles such as the UROVESA VAMTAC ST5 of the Spanish Army’.

ATLAS-RC is compatible with all versions of the MISTRAL missile. MBDA Spain will develop, produce and support this system.
