The tracked Stormer vehicle provides a mobile platform for the Star Streak High Velocity Missile (HVM) system giving excellent mobility with eight ready to fire missiles and a further nine stowed inside. The system is fitted with a roof-mounted air defence alerting device, providing target detection and prioritisation. A panoramic weapon sight islocated at the front of the vehicle.

The Star Streak High Velocity Missile (HVM) is designed to counter threats from very high performance, low-flying aircraft and fast ‘pop up’ strikes by helicopter attacks. The missile travels at more than three times the speed of sound. HVM can be fired from the shoulder, from a lightweight multiple launcher or from the Stormer armoured vehicle.

The HVM system is a low-level Close Air Defence system with a rapid engagement capacity optimised to counter the attack helicopter threat. The missile employs a system of three dart type projectiles which can make multiple hits on the target. Each of these darts has an explosive warhead.
