Plasan releases footage of modern “tank hunter”

Israeli armoured vehicle specialist Plasan released a video showing the advanced version of a modern anti-tank system based on the highly protected and maneuverable SandCat vehicle.

According to a company’s statement, the new modern anti-tank missile system is a combination of the highly protected and maneuverable SandCat together with a multiple launcher for Spike NLOS (Non Line Of Sight) missiles developed by Rafael, fully integrated on a single self-contained platform.

The unique Spike NLOS is a multi-purpose, electro-optical missile system with a real-time wireless data link for ranges up to 25km. The Spike NLOS weapon system is a member of the world-renowned Spike Family.

The anti-tank mobile complex with Spike NLOS provides the gunner with the unique ability to attack targets at stand-off range with no line of sight. The Spike NLOS weapon system can be operated in either direct attack mode or midcourse navigation mode based on target coordinates. These modes enable the defeat of long-range hidden targets with pinpoint precision, damage assessment and the obtaining of real-time intelligence.
