The battle for the last scrap of land held by ISIS has taken longer than expected.
Spike NLOS Takes Out Rocket Team
Onboard and UAV video as it takes out the rocket launching team as they make a getaway. The onboard video starts at 1:45. Spike NLOS is a multi-purpose, guided missile, with a dual-seeker (combining both CCD/IIR- thermographic sensors), and tandem-HEAT warhead, that has a range of 25 KM, as well as both fire-and-forget and man-in-the-loop modes. With its ability to loiter above the battlefield, it can also provide some degree of battle-field panoramics. It is designed to operate day/night in different weather conditions. When engaging tanks, it performs with a lofted, top-down trajectory. It has been in service for some time, but only in recent years was declassified and sold to other countries.
