NLAW Anti Tank Weapon in Action | The Missiles Destroyed Russian Tanks

The Next Generation Light Anti-tank Weapon (NLAW), also known as the Main Battle Tank and Light Anti-tank Weapon (MBT LAW), and in Sweden known as the Robot 57 (RB-57), is a fire-and-forget, lightweight shoulder-fired, and disposable (single-use) missile system, designed for use by infantry. It was developed in Sweden by Saab Bofors Dynamics, and manufactured in the United Kingdom, primarily by Thales Air Defence.

NLAW eliminates even the most advanced tanks. It is best-in-class for dismounted light forces that operate in all environments, including built-up areas.

The NLAW is a short-range anti-tank missile whose characteristics make it sort of a hybrid. It’s armed with a powerful 150 mm High-Explosive Anti-Tank (HEAT) warhead designed to knock out Russian main battle tanks at short ranges.

FIM-92 Stinger in Action | This Missile Destroyed Russian Su-25

The FIM-92 Stinger missile is a MANPAD (man-portable air-defense system shoulder-fired) that specializes in taking out helicopters. Stingers have been around in numbers since the late 1970s. They were originally developed by General Dynamics and are now made by Raytheon Missile Systems. The Stinger can also target low-flying airplanes and drones, even enemy cruise missiles.

The Stingers can go after what is believed to be a force of over 500 Russian helicopters. Modernized Stingers have a proximity fuse that explodes the rocket near a target.

Stingers allow for versatile tactics, techniques, and procedures. They will come in handy during urban combat in which a crew can hide in a bunker or building and blast helicopters and low-flying fighters out of the sky.
