Rafael releases new video footage of SPIKE NLOS launched from a light buggy
February 4, 2019 – Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. has released a video from a firing test of the SPIKE NLOS launched from a light buggy (TOMCAR).
SPIKE NLOS is a 30 km Precision Guided Missile, part of the 5th generation electro-optical SPIKE Family, operational today in 31 countries worldwide. Last year, RAFAEL unveiled a light, modular launcher for the SPIKE missile, integrated on a light buggy (e.g. TOMCAR).
The SPIKE Launcher used in this test weighs only 1350 kg, including 8 rounds – providing armies and Special Forces with a low-weight, maneuverable, precision element that can be easily air-deployed deep into enemy territory and used to attack point targets (static & mobile) with very high precision, and with no dependence on GPS.
