Does anyone have details of military versions of the BAe ATP? In particular the P.132 ATP Maritime from 1989 and any tactical airlift versions. I think I saw a rear loading version, like the Andover, in Flight or Air International around 20 years ago, IIRC.

Any other military projects/versions info welcome. Although not a great commercial success, I do think the ATP would have been useful in military roles, as the 748/Andover had been. Maybe the RAF could have done with a few Andover C.Mk.4s? Or Coastguarder MR.2s?

I have a 1978 article on the Coastguarder from Air Int (with cutaway and GA) if you're interested. Nothing on ATPs I'm afraid, apart from a collection of complimentary refreshment vouchers when they lived up to their unoffical name: A Technical Problem. Which could explain the lack of success for an MPA version.

Thanks for the pic Mirage 4000. I knew it was unreliable, although I think the ATP looked good.

The inner ones look like Exocets, the outer ones could be torpedoes (although they look a bit small).

Warplane listed the 1987 Le Bourget proposal for the maritime ATP as offering Litton APS-504(V)5 search radar, GEC AQS-902 LAPADS acoustic processor, dual INS and and unspecified FLIR.

The speculative art showed a hemp-coloured Indian Navy example with underwing Sea Eagles and hefty torpedoes larger than Stingray. No indication in the article as to whether there was a basis for this configuration.
