Description: HOT is an anti-tank missile developed to engage armored vehicles at ranges of up to 4,000 meters. It can be fired from both rotary-wing aircraft and ground vehicles. HOT was originally developed by Euromissile, a joint venture between France and Germany, which became MBDA in the 1990s. HOT missile family includes HOT missile introduced in 1974, HOT 2 in 1986 and HOT 3 in 1998. Since 1974 to date, more than 80,000 HOT missiles have been sold to at least 18 countries worldwide.

HOT missile guidance system is based on jam-resistant wire and Semi-Active Command-to-Line-Of-Sight (SACLOS) principle. HOT 2 missile features an improved warhead compared with HOT missile. HOT 3 introduced in 1998 features a tandem warhead to defeat Explosive Reactive Armor (ERA) protected targets and CCD sensor. HOT missile systems have been successfully integrated onto Pandur, VAB, Piranha, AMX-10 and Jaguar 1 ground vehicles and BO 105, Gazelle and A129 helicopters. HOT 3 missile was selected for the Tiger attack helicopter program.
