Spike LR 2
Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. has been awarded a contract with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to supply more than one thousand SPIKE LR 2, 5th generation electro-optical, precision-guided missiles.

The SPIKE LR 2 has a range of 5.5 km when fired from ground launchers (an increase of over 35% from the 4-km range of the original SPIKE LR) and up to 10 km when fired from a helicopter.


SPIKE LR 2 has also been offered to the Australian Army.


Edit: A few more links:

Well ... here we have an article discussing real world use of the Spike ATGM ... as always it's less impressive then manufacturer claims.

" the writer has never operated this system, nor has he been around anyone who has."

Hmm I can understand in the desert the background would be hot but a uncovered shipping container siting in the sun would be a very hot target surely.
