Militarnyi informs about it.
Currently, the 184th Training Center of the Hetman Petro Sahaidachnyi National Ground Forces Academy is undergoing intensive training of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the use of NLAW anti-tank missile systems in combat conditions.
The press service of the Land Forces reported that our soldiers have now mastered the theoretical basis of modern weapon.
Over three days of intensive training under the guidance of experienced instructors from a British Armed Forces training mission called Operation Orbital, which is being held at the National Academy of Land Forces at the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security.
Now at the Battle in the City training complex, the military is training practical actions against enemy armor and vehicles with NLAW missile systems.
A few days ago, British instructors began training Ukrainian Armed Forces fighters to use these anti-tank weapons. They acquaint Ukrainian soldiers with the tactical and technical characteristics and features of the use of these weapons.
It will be recalled that the United Kingdom recently handed over a consignment of anti-tank weapons such as NLAW systems to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This came after British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said during a parliamentary hearing that London would supply Ukraine with light anti-tank defense weapons.
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 shoulder-launched anti-tank system with an effective firing range of up to 600 (in the new version up to 800) meters. Before starting, the gunner uses a sight for three seconds to track the angular velocity of the target, which is remembered by an inertial missile block, which during flight makes the necessary adjustments, adjusting the direction of motion.
Serially produced since 2009, 20,000 systems were ordered. In the Swedish army, the system is designated as RB-57, is in service with about 10 countries. NLAW is manufactured at Thales Air Defense in Belfast in cooperation with other British companies.
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.
