PARIS (BNS): MBDA has recently received a production contract to supply Germany with the Meteor Beyond Visual Range Air to Air missile. All six Meteor Partner Nations (PNs) (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Sweden & UK) have now placed production orders.

Production orders include operational missiles training equipment and supporting documentation.

Delivery schedules and quantities are specific to the individual needs of the PN's and disclosure is at their discretion, as per MBDA's news release.

Meteor is powered by a throttleable ducted rocket with latest technology, utilising an advanced RF seeker and network enabled through a sophisticated data link.

The missile's unique capabilities provide a step change in combat effectiveness and survivability to modern aircraft.
