Egypt to acquire the new VL MICA system from MBDA

MBDA obtained a contract from the Egyptian Navy to acquire the VL MICA NG (New Generation) air defense system to equip its Egyptian corvettes.

The VL MICA NG system was officially launched in October 2020, and is based on the integration of the (MICA NG Next Generation) missile into the existing VL MICA and the short-range air defense system.

The VL MICA NG system provides improved capabilities to deal with typical targets (drones, small aircraft), in addition to future threats characterized by a significant reduction in infrared and radio frequencies. Moreover, the VL MICA NG will be able to intercept “conventional” targets (aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, and anti-ship missiles) at longer ranges.
