MBDA Apache

The MBDA Apache is a French-developed air-launched anti-runway missile, manufactured by European arms company MBDA. The Apache system is at the base of the SCALP EG concept, notably for the aerodynamics and the stealth feature. The SCALP EG also has a different propulsion system as well as a different warhead. While the SCALP uses a single high-penetration warhead, the Apache's effect is obtained by dispersal of 10 cluster submunitions.


The Apache was the first cruise missile to enter service in the French Air Force and was first fielded in 2001. 100 missiles were delivered between 2001 and 2004. No further deliveries are expected.
