    The Singapore Army has acquired the Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Spike Short-Range (SR) man-portable missile system as its next generation guided anti-armor weapon for its infantry and guards forces.

    According to jane's, the Spike SR has replaced the Saab Bofors Dynamics 84 mm Carl-Gustaf M2 recoilless rifle in service.

    "Soldiers will be trained in the Spike SR system from June 2017," the Ministry of Defense (MINDEF) told Jane's.

    The Spike SR is the latest and most compact member of Rafael's Spike fire-and-forget missile family. The Spike SR incorporates an uncooled and fixed day/night-capable electro-optical (EO) seeker and tracker. According to Rafael, the SR has a short activation-to-launch cycle of less than 6 seconds.
