Before the war broke out in 1985, the Canadian Defence Force had shown an interest in the Swiss company Oerlikon-Contraves's Air Defence Anti-Tank System (ADATS). Some test systems have been supplied to the Royal Canadian Horse Artillery in Germany to test its dual-purpose short-range surface-to-air and anti-tank missile capabilities in combat.
The Air Defense Anti-Tank System (ADATS) is a dual-purpose short-range surface-to-air and anti-tank missile system based on the M113A2 vehicle. It was developed as a private venture by the Swiss company Oerlikon-Contraves, a member of the Rheinmetall Defence Group of Germany (launcher, radar and fire control) and the American Martin Marietta Corporation (missile). The ADATS missile is a laser-guided supersonic missile with a range of 10 kilometres, with an electro-optical sensor with TV and Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR). The carrying vehicle also has a search radar with an effective range of over 25 kilometres.
