Default 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.

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

as one pointed out

" the author can be anyone else in the internet. Even i can be Fenrir170"

and

" 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.
