Pakistani Terror Camps, Al-Khalid Tanks Under Direct Threat From Israeli Spike ATGM

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.

The decision to procure the third-generation fire-and-forget ATGM with a tandem-charge high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead and an operational range of up to 4 kilometers was taken at the during the five-day biannual Army Commanders’ Conference in New Delhi that ended on April 13.

Earlier, in December 2017, the Indian government discarded a $500 million deal with Rafael for 321 Spike ATGM launchers and 8,356 missiles in favour of an indigenous ATGM system currently under development by India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
