Initial Operational Capability (IOC):
Also Known As: NTD
Description: The SPIKE-ER, formerly known as the NTD, is a multi-platform anti-tank missile with an extended range over previous SPIKE missiles. It has been designed to be mounted on ground vehicles, helicopters, and naval vessels. It seeker combines electro-optical sensors (IR/CCD-TV) and a fiber optic data link to achieve fire and forget and directed launch modes. Using the fiber optic data link the SPIKE-ER missile is able to perform battle damage assessment, in-flight retargeting, identification friend or foe, attacks without collateral damage and pinpoint accuracy strikes.
In June 2004, EuroSpike GmbH, a joint venture between Diehl (40%), Rheinmetall (40%), and Rafael (20%), was created to support Spike family of anti-armor missiles sales to European customers.
The SPIKE-ER missile operates day/night, in all weather conditions. Its tandem warhead ensures neutralization of ERA (Explosive Reactive Armor) protected targets. A single missile launcher weighs about 58 kg, and the 4-missile launcher for helicopters weighs 187 kg. A wooden round SPIKE-ER missile weighs 33 kg.
The SPIKE-ER long range anti-tank missile is currently deployed in Israel Armed Forces. The SPIKE-ER is the Israeli counterpart to proven Hellfire long range anti-tank missile.
