Self-propelled version of the Mistral portable anti-aircraft missile system for direct protection of ground troops from low-altitude air attack. The fully rotatable turret with a firing radar is equipped with two launchers of three Mistral. The system has also been fitted with a thermal imaging camera for operation in night conditions. Vehicles of the VAB 4x4 or Panhard ERC 6x6 types were planned as turret carriers. However, in neither case did mass production take place.
