Description: The Trigat-LR is a third generation fire-and-forget anti-tank missile designed to counter armored tanks protected by ERA (Explosive Reactive Armor) or APS (Active Protection System). The guidance system consists of an imaging IR sensor locked on the target before the launching.

The Trigat's propulsion system features thrust vector control acting at the missile centre-body providing high maneuverability to the missile and allowing low speed launching. This capability is very valuable to carry out Trigat launching in confined space.

Trigat features a tandem shaped charge warhead able to destroy the best protected armored targets and detonated by an impact fuze.

The Trigat-LR will be the main anti-tank weapon of the Tiger attack helicopter and also can be installed on ground vehicles. It will replace existing Hot missiles.

On 30 June 2006, the German Federal Office of Defence Technology and Procurement (BWB), MBDA/LFK and Diehl BGT Defence signed the PARS 3 LR missile procurement contract. Valued at 380 million Euro ($450 million), the contract establishes the delivery of 680 PARS 3 LR missiles to the German Army through 2014. These missiles will be used by the Tiger UHT anti-tank and support variant.
