  • Training means:
    • indoor simulator
      • Indoor simulator

      Indoor simulator is used in premises and is meant for training of operators and helping them to acquire the necessary skills for operating the ATGW. Allows to imitate combat situation, including night firing.

    • field simulator
      • Field simulator

      Field (outdoor simulator) is a mock-up of the launcher, and it allows to train the operators , helping them to acquire skills of system operation on the terrain.

  • Control aids
  • Peculiarities and advantages of use

  • Small dimentions and weight of the components allowes to shape small-size packs that can be carried by a crew of three.
  • The system can be transported by any type of transport, and can be dropped with airborne troops.
  • Best combination of small sizes and weight and high technical and operational specifications enables to equip airborne troops, infantry and motorized infantry with the Metis-M1 system to enhance their firepower and carrying out large-scale combat actions, as well as for counter-terrorist operations, when added to special troops.
