Towed launcher seems what UK will mainly use.

UK sees Spike as a very accurate Royal Artillery asset...

That may be but we've progressed beyond the Nebelwefer. Towing it around is fine for evaluation but it makes NO sense to put what is a very valuable asset that can easily fit into the back of a truck........on a trailer towed by a truck. And there seems to be exactly ONE photo of it on a trailer. That photo in post 8 does indeed seem to be a South Korean test but it shows just how small a vehicle it CAN fit into

I see a lot of speculation (but unfortunatley no confirmation) of mounting the launcher on the Stormer (we have loads of 'em and it already has a trainable missile platform...)

Of course it is kinda irrelevant as they ought to be "off-map" assets anyway (?)

In British use Spike would seem to be mainly an off map artillery weapon in game terms. Although perhaps less so when used on a M113 in Iraq and in Afghanistan.

Have to say that following, the latest upgrade, extractor/Spike is not on my copy of SPMBT, nor is it in the Mobhack editor.

Don,
Send me the link for the possible Korean vehicle. There are a couple of former Korean linguists here that would take a shot at translating it.

It's not a Korean website.....I think it's Russian with reference to Korean interest and tests but I found another one with the same photo that has an English version

As DRG explained in post #5, If you are using the latest version (May2015 - check in info tab of OOB in Mobhack or V9.1 in game) the Exactor is there.

Unit #691 Exactor 1 - Spike ER on M113(Hafiz Tamuz)
Unit #692 Exactor 2 - Spike ER provisionally mounted on Coyote

Or use database check utility to find users of Spike ER in Brit OOB...

Or as Don suggested start a battle after April 07 and look in the armour menu for Exactor...

If you don't see it in you game or MOBHack you don't have the latest patch

Your game should report V9.1 and the info tab for the Brit OOB in MOBHack should read -----Version May 2015(C)2015 A.Gailey & The Camo Workshop


If it does not , you need to patch your game

EDIT.....Scorpio beat me to it by a minute:)

......and we are looking at ways to model this better in the game.....
