Next Generation Light Anti-tank Weapon
The Swedish Saab AB Group in conjunction with the British branch of Thales Group developed the NLAW (Next Generation Light Anti-tank Weapon) for the purpose and funding of the Great British Defence Ministry.
NLAW is a manual disposable anti-tank system with an effective firing range of up to 600 (in the new version up to 800) meters.

The total weight of the system is 12.4 kg, the missile has a diameter of 115 mm, and the caliber of the tandem charge warhead is 150 mm, it is able to hit targets both on the flight line and on top.
