    The Republic of Korea Army (RoKA) has unveiled a new anti-tank guided weapon carrier at the DX Korea 2018 exhibition.

    The K-153C ATGW carrier was introduced in 2017 as part of the service’s ongoing tactical vehicle fleet recapitalisation efforts, which include replacing the army’s ageing K-131 (Kia Motors KM420) light utility vehicles and K-311A1 (Kia Motors KM450) cargo trucks with a more survivable and agile multirole platform that can be readily configured for a variety of missions.

    The 5.7 tonne vehicle – which is operated by a crew of four including the driver, commander, gunner, and loader – is based on the standard wheelbase version of Kia Motors’ Light Tactical Vehicle (LTV) and measures 5 m long, 2.2 m wide, and 2 m high.

    The primary armament of the K-153C is a roof-mounted twin mount for the indigenous Raybolt anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) system and its associated Observation and Launch Unit (OLU) – a target acquisition device equipped with a day/night thermal sight. The weapon has been developed by the Agency for Defense Development (ADD) and manufactured by LIG Nex1 to replace the RoKA and Republic of Korea Marine Corps (RoKMC) BGM-71 TOW (Tube-launched, Optically-tracked and Wire-guided) missiles.

    Jane’s understands from a RoKA spokesperson that the fire-and-forget capability of the Raybolt ATGM increases the K-153C vehicle’s lethality and survivability as it carries a tandem high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) shaped charge that can defeat up to 900 mm of rolled homogeneous steel under explosive reactive armour protection. The vehicle carries up to four ready-to-fire Raybolt missiles in their launch tubes in its rear cargo bay.
