The multi-role light guided missile system (MELLS) replaces in the Bundeswehrthe anti-tank systems Milan and TOW.
MELLS is a long-range electro-optical anti-tank system for day, night and limited visibility operations.
The missile system allows infantry and mechanized units to combat main battle tank threats in a variety of attack and defense scenarios. Secondary targets include lightly armored vehicles, bunkers, and targets behind cover. However, the guided missile system can also be used for pure observation and reconnaissance tasks as well as against slow-flying objects or helicopters that are hovering in the airspace near the ground.

A quantum leap in electronic warfareThe rapidly evolving threats on the electronic battlefield pose major challenges for today's air forces. Air Forces must be trained to deal with these threats and successfully achieve their objectives in the face of growing threats. Therefore, an upgrade of the training areas is necessary to present the pilots with a realistic environment that replicates modern air defense systems in order to optimize the effectiveness of the training. For this purpose, the company ELTA Systems Ltd. (ELTA) leveraged its five decades of technological heritage and culture of innovation to bring Scorpius-T (ELL-8257SB) to market.
