Spider Anti-Tank Missile System

SPIDER is a fiber optic guided “man in the loop” tactical missile. The missile is equipped with an imaging infrared seeker with “Fire, Observe and Update” operating mode. A fiber-optical cable connects the missile.

The missile uses a tandem warhead – two shaped charges, a precursor warhead to detonate any explosive reactive armor and a primary warhead to penetrate the underlying armor. The SPIDER missile tandem warhead can penetrate up to 1000 mm RHA (rolled homogeneous armor).
