During  French President Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Serbia, MBDA announces the signing of a contract for Mistral 3 short-range air defence systems . Serbia becomes the 32nd customer country for the Mistral missile. This will allow Serbia to benefit from the shared user experiences from the many forces operating and to contribute to the definition of the future developments of the weapon systems. The contract is for the acquisition of Mistral missiles, related equipment and logistics, and the provision of technical and material assistance for the integration of the Mistral missile on the PASARS vehicles of the Serbian Armed Forces.
