MBDA to develop Joint Fire Support Missile

MBDA unveils the Joint Fire Support Missile (JFS-M) mockup at ILA Berlin Air Show.

JFS-M is being developed according to the needs of the German Armed Forces and will be designed as a modular weapon with a range of up to 499 km.

The new indirect fire support capability will be employed as part of the German defense ministry’s plan to equip each of the three German Army divisions with an artillery regiment.

According to the statement made by the company, the system will have the ability to launch a salvo and approach the target from different directions, confusing the air defense and hiding the launch position of the system.

MBDA stated that the missile has "GPS navigation, 3D flight planning and image-assisted navigation sensors" and AI-assisted "Automatic Target Recognition and Identification".
