Info
Manufacturer: General Dynamics European Land Systems-Mowag GmbH  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Anti-aircraft system  

This is a modified AMX-30 MBT chassis with two Euromissile Roland surface-to-air missiles in the ready to launch position and a further eight rounds in reserve in the hull, four either side, ready for automatic reloading. The surveillance radar is mounted on the turret rear with the tracking radar being mounted on the turret front. This version is in service with France (181), Iraq (13), Qatar (3), Spain (18) and Nigeria (16). Full details of this system are given in Jane's Land-Based Air Defence 1999-2000, pages 113-115. The exact number of Iraqi systems operational is uncertain. The French figure has recently been reduced, as 20 shelter-mounted models have been built by Euromissile using some key parts from the French Army systems based on the AMX-30 MBT chassis.
