Iranian made sniper rifle has over 3 KM Range. On a serious note, the range is too short for an Anti-Tank missile. But its weight is also too light making it suitable for special forces.
Are you really comparing a sniper round and guided AP anti-tank missile just to glorify Iran?
Care to show and compare Iranian man-portable anti-tank missile below 20 kg?
Once they match the Aim-120, I hope they keep advancing the Bozdogan program to develop a missile to match the Meteor, and put the Greeks with their Rafales back in their place.
It is under development too, going to take some years but eventually there will be ramjet-scramjet powered AA missile.
Pakistan should work with Turkey on this Anti Tank missile. Try to increase the range of up to 4 KM. It can be great addition in our arsenal
OMTAS already has 4 km according to the brochures and 6-7km+ range according to the sources. Either carried by 2 personnel or mounted on vehicles.

And Karaok is 16kg with the tube ;) has 2500 meters range.

Toophan is that TOW derived one i presume? Then it is more comparable to OMTAS:
With targeting system + tube a launcher unit weights about 35 kg and carrier by 2 personnel, or mounted on vehicles.

Karaok is developed to replace Javelin, OMTAS is developed to replace Kornet-TOW, OMTAS's updated range has not still been announced.

Even RPG has a range of 800m with 80-90% chances of hit. 1km range appears poor for a modern ATGM
It is not 1, but 2.5 km with IIR seeker. For your information.
Quite close to DRDO's MPATGM in terms of weight, warhead, seeker and weight.

There are two types of ATGM (according to me) on basis of use.

One is Man-portable system weighting less than 20 kg (Launcher + missile) so that it is easily carried by single soldier along 2 extra rounds (atleast). And can hit targets as far as 2000 meters atleast.

Second is the 6000-8000 meter range ATGM fixed on top of a moving body (jeep or personal carrier variant specified for ATGM). And the launcher fixed on the vehicle should atleast have 8 missiles in launcher while extra 8-16 missiles in the carrier with 2 personals (driver and loader).

We can cover the second through other means but for the first scenario this Turkish ATGM (KaraOK) is perfect fit. We should already start its local production and aim for atleast 2000 launchers. This should be the "must have" addition to our infantry modernisation program.

A must have weapon for Pakistan armed forces,It is light yet simple to operate a perfect choice for targeting infantry,Bunkers,IFV'S basically a weapon made for the battlefield spectrum.

Which we are lacking since the ATGM'S we operate are not lightweight.Or rather man portable
