Effective damage

İt has a shaped warhead that can pernetrate about 900 mm of RHA and has proxy fuse in order to do splash damage to aircrafts.

Comparison with analogues

The MIM 146 is kind of similar to RBS BOLİDE missile because the two of them has almost same amount of range and has a shaped charge proxy fuse warhead also,two of them rides beam

Usage in battles

Describe situations when you would utilise this missile in-game (vehicle, pillbox, base, etc)

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • High speed
  • Effective against both ground and air targets
    • Can even destroy targets with overpressure
    • Has high penetration for an ATGM
    • Great overload

Cons:

  • Can be hard to guide
  • Not tandem charge; can be negated by ERA

History

In the 1970s, the Swiss company Oerlikon-Bührle company researched into the viability of a low-cost anti-aircraft missile that can also act in an anti-tank role. Designated under ADATS, Oerlikon partnered with the American company Martin Marietta in 1979 for the missile program. The first missile firing was conducted in June 1981.[1]

The ADATS firing a MIM-146 missile during US testings.

In 1986, the Canadian Forces accepted the missile as part of their LLAD program.[1][2] The first deliveries begun in 1988 with a total of 36 ADATS weapons procured by 1994.[1][3][4] The ADATS would serve in the Canadian military until 31 March 2011.[2]

In the United States, as the M247 DIVAD vehicle was cancelled in 1985, the search was still on for a FAAD (Forward-Area Air Defense) weapon to replace aging equipment such as the MIM-72 Chaparral. In 1989, the ADATS was evaluated as a LOS-F-H air defense system, with the missiles designated the MIM146. However, the MIM146 was found to have low reliability during testing of the equipment in combat conditions, and so the ADATS procurement was cancelled in 1992.[1] To fill in their role, the Bradley Stinger Fighting Vehicle was obtained, mounting FIM-92 Stinger missiles as their primary anti-aircraft weapon.[1][3]

Another user of the ADATS missile is the Royal Thai Air Force, who have linked them to their Skyguard fire control radar system[4]
