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-S, also known as the Igla-Super or SA-24 Western designation, features a series of improvements to engage a wide range of airborne threat such as supersonic aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) day/night and in all weather conditions. The Igla-S is equipped with a proximity fuze instead of an impact fuze used on previous models along with a more effective 2.5-kg warhead. The missile's range has been increased from 5,000 meters in previous models to 6,000 meters. The man-portable launch unit is fitted with a night sight system and the missile's seeker has been optimized against heavy clutter and jamming backgrounds. The Igla-S is available for modernization of existing missile systems utilizing older models from the Igla family. The latest variant of the Igla missile family was introduced in the mid-2000s and has been exported to several customers worldwide.
