Pacific Aerospace inaugurates new MANPADS/MANPATS design
PAIC, one of New Zealand's largest industrial bodies, has inaugurated its first design meant for military use.
The UCMS, or Universal Combat Missile System, is a dual-purpose guided missile system, which can target both aircraft and armoured vehicles - the first of its kind in the world. Aimed at standardizing the Realm's military defenses and cutting costs needed to maintain 2 separate missile systems, the UCMS will undergo initial prototype design and manufacture.
As a joint TPA project, PAIC has also invited researchers from BAE Systems Australia (The Australis Republic), Seri Sayam, the Central American Alliance, and Greater Indonesia Republic to perform the first combat trials in Linton Military Base. Parliament has approved $25 million NZD of additional funding, and the UCMS is expected to enter service by 2021.
