PARS 3 LR (Germany)


PARS 3 LR (third generation missile/long-range) is the main armament for the Tiger helicopter ordered by the German Army.

PARS 3 LR is a high-precision fire-and-forget weapon system for engaging mobile and stationary targets equipped with the latest generation of armour protection, field fortresses, bunkers and other high-value targets.

The 'fire-and-forget' system allows the helicopter to quit its position immediately after firing a missile, thereby exposing itself only as briefly as necessary to the threat of retaliation.

The infrared seeker head locks on to the target before firing (lock-on before launch) after the optical system integrated into the Tiger's mast sight has detected and identified it.

RPG-18 "The Fly" is a soviet rocket-propelled grenade ( we are all disposable grenade launcher as the name carry the name of "granate").
Созданна under influence of American grenade launcher M72 LAW

I will finish writing what is not present in Wikipedia. Produced a few million pieces. Are on storages in reserve and on an armament does not stand. When casting into the to battle position, a return is not possible and a grenade must be Shot. Powerless against modern tanks, but very effective against a lightly armored vehicles and infantry.
