On October 1, 2108, events were held in honor of the Military Aviation Day of Georgia at the Georgian Aleksevka airbase near Tbilisi, which were attended by Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze, Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria and Chief of the General Staff of the Georgian Armed Forces, Major General Vladimir Chachibaya. During the events, the Mistral ATLAS short-range anti-aircraft missile systems made by France from France produced by the French branch of the MBDA association using Mistral anti-aircraft missile systems launched for the first time were demonstrated for the first time.

Recall that the Ministry of Defense of Georgia on June 15, 2015 concluded contracts in France with a total value of more than 100 million euros for the purchase of air defense assets.One contract worth € 56.131369 million with ThalesRaytheonSystems (TRS, a joint venture between the American corporation Raytheon and the French group Thales) provided for the delivery of one mobile ground warning radar for airborne targets Ground Master GM403 and two mobile radar for medium range detection of air targets Ground Master GM200, and also mobile command posts of air defense of production of Thales group. The second contract worth more than 50 million euros provided for the supply of self-propelled anti-aircraft missile systems short-range MBDA Mistral ATLAS (originally reported on the acquisition by Georgia of the French air defense system MICA VL).
The implementation of contracts was delayed for political and financial reasons. Only in 2017, the French leadership gave final permission for its implementation, as a result of which the French bank Societe General issued a loan to Georgia worth about 100 million euros to finance contracts. The sanction for the shipment of equipment was given by Paris only in the beginning of 2018
The Ground Master GM403 radar received by Georgia was first demonstrated on May 26, 2018 at an arms exhibition on Freedom Square in Tbilisi in connection with the 100th anniversary of the proclamation of independence of Georgia, and the Ground Master GM200 radar and command and control center of air defense were first demonstrated in Alekseyevka on May 31, 2018 .The equipment supplied under this contract is made on a Renault Truck Defense (Arquus) type K chassis with an 8x8 wheel formula. Radar GM403 was also demonstrated at events in Aleksevka on October 1.
The Mistral ATLAS received by Georgia is carried out on the chassis of French cars Arquus ACMAT VLRA 2 with the 4x4 wheel formula. The Mistral ATLAS (Affût Terrestre Léger Anti-Saturation) system in the version supplied by Georgia was developed as early as the early 1990s and is a two-charge basic launcher (manually operated) for Mistral MANPADS (now, apparently, performed by Mistral 2, maximum range of up to 6.5 km). It is known that the Mistral ATLAS complexes were previously supplied to the armed forces of France, Belgium, Hungary, Cyprus and the United Arab Emirates.
