A new generation of anti-tank missiles from the creators of the Iron Dome has been successfully tested in Israel. They are capable of hitting a target at a distance of up to 50 kilometers, according to the Israeli defense concern RAFAEL.
In particular, it is an advanced anti-tank missile Tamuz-6 family Spike NLOS (non-line of sight – attack from closed positions). The operator of one missile installation is able to control 4 Tamuz-6 missiles at once. This is possible thanks to technology that helps to recognize targets on their own before the defeat, and not by coordinates, as it was before.
The operator can also control the missile in another installation, which is located elsewhere. For example, a missile is fired by a helicopter, but it is within range of enemy air defenses. The helicopter then launches a missile and changes course, and control of the missile is transferred to the ground platform.
