Description: The Igla is a fire-and-forget, man-portable, shoulder-launched, short range Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) family designed to engage low flying fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft and cruise missiles. The family of missile systems includes the basic Igla (SA-18 Grouse and the naval version SA-N-8 Grouse western designations), the improved Igla-1/Igla-1M (SA-16 Gimlet and naval version SA-N-10 Gimlet NATO-codenames) and the latest Igla-S or Igla-Super (SA-24 Western designation). The Igla missile systems are intended to provide protection for military units on the battlefield and installations as well as Russian Navy warships and Russian Air Force rotary wing aircraft. The Soviet Union introduced the Igla missile system in 1983.

The Igla-1/Igla-1M is an improved version of Igla man-portable missile system introduced three years later than early Igla. The SAM system comprises the 9M310 (Igla-1?) and 9M313 (Igla-1M?) missiles, and the 9K310 launch unit with an integrated sight. A double seeker infrared and ultraviolet homing head has been provided to achieve the fire and forget capability. The IR/UV seeker has been designed for improved resistance in presence of InfraRed IR jammers, which makes Igal-1 far more lethal than previous systems.

The Igla employing the Mach 2+ 9M310/9M313 missiles is able to engage targets flying at Mach 1.2, between 10 and 3,500 meters of altitude, and at a maximum range of 5,000 meters. It is the Soviet counterpart to the American Stinger missile. The missile system is still available for export customers.
