The MMEV (Multi-Mission Effects Vehicle) was planned to be an evolutionary step to the ADATS in other words the successor.
The MMEV was in basic terms a LAV III Chassis with the normal LAV III turret removed and replaced with an ADATS turret.
The cost of the program was 750 Million CAD for 30 vehicles and 100 Million for the first phase of the project and it was awarded to Oerlikon Contraves.
Sadly there is not a lot of information on this vehicle as the vehicle was cancelled a little over a year into the project. (September 2005-November 2006) They did have a vehicle they did show off to the public at Eurosatory 2006.
The multi-mission effects vehicle offered the mobility of the LAV but the firepower of the ADATS and was able to engage tanks or air with a variety of different missiles.
The MMEV came to be a project because the Canadian government was planning to replace all their Leopard 1’s with different variants of the LAV III which were the MMEV, LAV AGS and LAV TAU. This plan as can be easily seen did not happen and when the the variants were cancelled they extending the planned service life of the Leopard 1’s that were in service.
This vehicle was to also include a new type of guided rocket similar to the APKWS guided rockets that can be found in game on several helicopters mainly found in the USA helicopter tech tree. The new guided rocket was called the CRV-7PG this was a collaboration between Norway Defence company Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace (KDA) and Canadian Aerospace company Magellan Aerospace (the manufacturing company of the CRV-7 rocket.). The collaboration between the companies was announced Jun 14th during Eurosatory 2006, the same time were the MMEV was first shown off to the public.
This missile was to combine the effectiveness of guided missile without the cost that normally accompanies guides missiles.
It is unknown if development has continued but since 2016 most traces of the rocket and the partnership that helped develop it have been removed from the internet and remain as archives.
When I asked Magellan Aerospace about it they told me they are unable to comment on it. Which made me think either it’s cancelled but still classified, not cancelled and still in development, or something else that I haven’t even thought of.
