Martín Pescador

The Martín Pescador MP-1000 was an Argentine air-to-surface missile developed by the CITEFA (Instituto de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas de las FFAA - Armed Forces Scientific and Technical Research Institute). The main user was the COAN (Comando Aviación Naval - Naval Aviation Command) of the Argentine Navy.

The Martin Pescador MP-1000 missile was radio guided, only in altitude. It is currently out of service, and the surviving airframes are scheduled to be converted to the AS-25K model, also in use by the Argentine Navy.
