nlaw (1).jpg


Direct attack,, Hitting from the top..
Shooting from inside rooms and buildings..
Its armor-piercing warhead destroys heavily protected tanks in one shot..
The system is very effective; when the operator only sees a small part of the target, he can simply aim at the visible part and shoot.. The missile will travel one meter above the line of sight before hitting the tank from above..

31455


NLAW can penetrate more than 500 mm of armor..
It is the only system that can take out a main battle tank from a distance of 20 meters..

Weight 12.5 kg..
For use by land forces.. it is a shoulder release and disposable .. Fires once before discarding..

I am truly truly truly suprised that the UK has 5,000 launchers in the first place. Given the ranges involved - there is no value in "reload" as the launch crew will have bigger problems on their hands than lugging that thing around after they have launched it ...

A good show of support from the UK and certainly something for the Russians to think about now that they did not have to before.

Not sure what the future holds in this conflict but i am personally proud that we in the UK, are on the right side of history on this one.
