Tuesday 2 October 2018, AmsterdamAnti-tank missiles are a type of guided missiles, which are primarily designed to destroy heavily defeat armoured military vehicles. The size of anti-tank guided missiles vary from shoulder-launched weapons, which can be transported by a single soldier, to larger tripod-mounted weapons, which require a squad or team to transport and fire, to vehicle and aircraft mounted missile systems. Anti-tank is defined as combat against the enemy’s tanks and other armoured equipment and vehicles. Its associated tasks include the closing of endangered directions, flanks, and junctions. Anti-tank is the part of combined arms combat which is directed against the tanks armour grouped for attack or already directly attacking, and the armoured equipment detached to their battle formation. For successful combat, the organisation of a solid anti-armour system is required, which includes anti-tank units as a basic element.
