Next-generation Light Anti-tank Weapon (NLAW)

A lone infantry soldier kneels with a Light Anti Tank Weapon, watching his platoon move across open ground at BATUS (British Army Training Unit Suffield) in Canada.


The Next-generation Light Anti-tank Weapon (NLAW) is the first, non-expert, short-range, anti-tank missile that rapidly knocks out any main battle tank in just one shot by striking it from above.

NLAW utilises predicted line of sight guidance and has overfly top and direct attack modes, and it is easy to use, making it a valuable tank destroyer for light forces that operate dismounted in all environments, including built up areas.

It also has night vision capability and is designed for all climate conditions and environments.
