NLAW – NEXT-GENERATION LIGHT ATW
CONFIDENCE IN COMBAT
NLAW (Next Generation Light Anti-tank Weapon) is the first ever, non-expert, single soldier, short range, anti-tank missile, that rapidly knocks out any Main Battle tank in just one shot by striking it from above. This makes it the true tank killer for light forces that operate dismounted in all environments including built up areas.
Overflying Top Attack (OTA)
Predicted Line Of Sight (PLOS) guidance
- NLAW entered service with three users during 2009.
- A huge interest has been shown also from other users.

- The weapon is easy to learn and use and all training is conducted by use of simulators.
- The combat weapon is completely maintenance free and it is designed to be operational in any environment.
