AT-12 “Swinger” (9K118 Sheksna) ATGM


Notes: This anti-tank missile was developed to be fired out of the gun barrel aboard T-62 main battle tanks; however in the 1990s a tube launcher was developed for use aboard helicopters and Su-25 “Frogfoot” attack jets. Guidance is by laser beam-riding meaning range is line-of-sight only. It has a HEAT warhead.
