Description: The Bolide is a jamming-resistant laser beam guided missile for use in lightweight, short-range air defenses. The Bolide has an intercept range of 8,000 meters and can engage targets flying at 5,000 meters of altitude. Its adaptive jamming-resistant laser proximity fuze enables small targets such as cruise missiles and UAVs engagements. The Bolide missile warhead is a combination of more than 3,000 tungsten pellets and shaped charge. Currently the RBS70 and the ASRAD-R air defense systems use the Bolide missile.

In April 2004, Australia placed the first international order for Bolide missiles worth 160 million SEK ($25 million) to be fired from Australian Army's RBS70 air defense systems. Following Czech Republic RBS70 selection for its armed forces in December 2004, Czech Republic placed an order for the RBS70 air defense system which included the Bolide missile as well as aircraft IFFs.
