Nimrod missile complex.
Air and Ground Launched Precision Guided Munition (PGM)
Nimrod is an anti-tank and anti-personnel laser homing missile of 26 km range and pinpoint accuracy. It is easily installed on a variety of ground platforms and helicopters.
On land, it provides standoff strike capability against ground point targets such as tanks, APCs, bunkers, personnel concentrations and guerrillas. A forward scouting team uses a laser designator to direct missiles that are fired from a base up to 26 km behind.
Mounted on light vehicles, the system is inherently mobile, and is a natural candidate for rapid-deployment forces. In mobile or fixed shore installations, Nimrod is an excellent coastal defense weapon.
