The Indian Army is set to deploy Israeli Spike ATGM on the Line of Control on the Pakistan border. Spike is an Israeli fire-and-forget, anti-tank guided missile and anti-personnel missile with a tandem-charge HEAT warhead, developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

The Spike ATGM can be used in the bunker-buster mode and they may be used against terrorist camps and launch pads besides conventional warfare targetting Pakistani Al-Khalid tanks.

India has signed a deal with Israel for the acquisition of 240 spike missiles which are generally used for anti-tank roles in the forces. The spike missiles had been acquired after the Balakot operations when India attacked Jaish terror camps in Pakistan in February this year.
