# Game version 2.9.0.17

# Description:

  • Missing MILAN 2 and ATGM for Marder 1A3 IFV.
  • The Marder 1A3 is the main infantry fighting vehicle of the German Army. First fielded in 1988, it is still widely used and has served multiple tours overseas such as in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Marder 1A3 is equipped with a MILAN 2 launcher that is capable of firing MILAN 2’s. The MILAN 2 was developed in 1984 as a more powerful missile system designed to penetrate Soviet armor. In 1992, a follow on upgrade to the missile known as the MILAN 2T or F2A MILAN was developed by the German Firm MVV which included a dual explosive device to penetrate ERA. These missiles were adopted by France, Germany, and many other countries. These ATGM's have the capability to penetrate around 800-880mm of armor behind ERA providing excellent anti-tank capability. The German Army uses multiple variants of the MILAN 2 Missile such as the MILAN 2T, and MILAN 2MP (Multi-purpose) however did not adopt the MILAN 3 ATGM. The launching system for a MILAN 2/2T can be mounted on a bipod or mounted to a vehicle such as the Marder 1A3 very easily. The German Army is currently shifting from the MILAN 2 system to the Israeli Spike and German PARS 3 Fire-and-Forget Anti-tank Guided Missiles. See video for details . Bottom source also provides video of German Anti-tank unit firing the MILAN 2. If attached to a Marder 1A3, the unit can also attach the launcher to the Marder 1A3 above the commanders position.
  • Missile Characteristics:
    • Warhead: Tandem HEAT
    • Caliber: 115mm
    • Flight Speed: 200m/s
    • Rocket Weight: ~7kg
    • Guidance: Infrared (by Wire)/SALCOS
    • Detonation Mechanism: Contact
    • Operation Range:
      • 200-2,000m
    • Penetration:
      • 800-880mm of RHA (MILAN 2) or 800-880mm of RHA behind ERA (MILAN 2T)

 

# Corrective Action:

  • Add the MILAN 2 ATGM at the minimum (and if necessary the MILAN 2T/MILAN 2 Multi-Purpose for a High Explosive (HE) Missile which also could be used against low-fliers) to the Marder 1A3.
  • This will increase the effectiveness of the Marder 1A3 as well as give it Missile options similar to the M3A3 Bradley and BMP-2M.

This unit can be mounted to a Fuchs, Marder 1A3, or 1A5 as these vehicles have built in adapters for the launching unit and because of this, the MILAN 2 system can be attached to mount of the perspective vehicle within minutes as seen on the Fuchs. Note the MILAN crates from the video have “F2 MILAN Guided Missile” in German on it which is another designation of the MILAN 2.
