Description: The IRIS-T SLM is a tactical medium range air defense system based on IRIS-T SL surface-to-air missile (SAM), launcher vehicles as well as radar and fire control systems. The IRIS-T SL missile was developed originally as a complementary missile for the MEADS of the German Armed Forces. IRIS-T SLS and LFK NG vertical-launch missiles are also compatible with the IRIS-T SL launcher vehicle. This new missile system is being offered by Diehl BGT Defence for export customers since early 2011. In March 2013 Sweden ordered the new air defense system with first deliveries planned for 2016.
