    if it can have strike length vls (24 cells) then it can have the camm-er too. dont worry about our country, worry about your own and trust me your country has its own problems.

    He is correct, 24 strike length VLS and it can even quad pack CAMM.

    MBDA Awarded £323 Million Deal for Next Batch of CAMM Air Defence Missiles for UK Armed Forces

    MBDA has a secured a £323 million deal for the next batch of cutting-edge air defence missiles for the British Army and Royal Navy.

    The next-generation Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) is designed for use both at sea and on land. It has the capability to defend against anti-ship cruise missiles, aircraft and other highly sophisticated threats.

    Designed and manufactured by MBDA in the UK, CAMM will be deployed using the Sea Ceptor and Land Ceptor weapon systems that will protect the Royal Navy’s Type 23 and future Type 26 warships, as well as enhancing the British Army’s Ground Based Air Defence system.

    Sea Ceptor and Land Ceptor use innovative radar and datalink technology to guide the CAMM with incredible accuracy. CAMM’s associated radar system tracks the maritime or land-based threat and uses the datalink to update the missile with the location of the threat. The CAMM’s own active radar seeker can then take over the missile guidance. The missiles are designed to provide 360-degree coverage and high degrees of manoeuvrability.

    The Sea Ceptor weapon system incorporating CAMM will replace the Sea Wolf weapon system on the Type 23 Frigate and provide the anti-air defence capability on the new Type 26 frigates for the Royal Navy. Similarly, the Land Ceptor weapon system will replace the Rapier weapon system in service with the British Army and contribute technology to the replacement of ASRAAM in service with the Royal Air Force.


    With a significant presence in five European countries and within the USA, in 2015 MBDA achieved a turnover of € 3 billion with an order book of € 15.9 billion. With more than 90 armed forces customers in the world, MBDA is a world leader in missiles and missile systems. MBDA is jointly owned by Airbus (37.5%), BAE Systems (37.5%), and Leonardo (25%).

    CAMM-ER does not involve the UK, only CAMM does. The lack of UK interest in CAMM-ER stems from the fact that a) The RN already has Aster 30s for long range and ABM and b) SAMs can't out-range AGMs/cruise missiles and you can't even detect low-flying cruise missiles until the last 25-30km anyway. Hence why Aster 30 is quoted at 120+km against aircraft and 30km against cruise missiles. The aim will be for Type 26 and Type 31 frigates (10+8) to carry 48 missiles each, providing a total of 864 missiles to defend against AShMs. The 6 Type 45s can either carry a combined total of 288 Aster 30s or 192 Aster 30s + 384 quad-packed CAMMs.

    Arguably a medium-to-long range land-based SAM wouldn't go amiss but for such a role a proper system like SAMP/T or MEADS would be a much better and more capable fit than CAMM-ER.
