Mbt law light anti tank weapon

  2. 2.  The development is a joint venture between Sweden and the UK, and the UK MoD Defence Procurement Agency will procure the systems for Sweden.  It has been estimated that the UK requirement may be for up to 20,000 systems for the UK Army, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force Regiment.  In December 2007, Finland placed an order for an undisclosed number of NLAW systems.  An additional (undisclosed) number were ordered in December 2008.
  3. 3.  Both launcher and missile development are carried out at Saab Bofors Dynamics facilities at Eskilstuna and Karlskoga in Sweden using the expertise gained on anti- armour systems such as the Carl-Gustaf system, the AT4 CS confined spaces weapon and the Bill anti-tank missile.  Thales Air Defence is the major UK partner, leading Team MBT LAW which includes 14 UK subcontractors for the manufacture of the weapon system.  Final assembly and test is carried out at the Thales Air Defence facilities in Belfast.
  4. 4.  The soldier can bring the missile system from the carry position to the firing position and make it ready to fire in under five seconds.  The soldier discards the launcher after firing and can retain the night sight if needed.  The 115/150mm calibre launcher is of composite material construction.  The launcher is fitted with the gunner's optical sight, a foldaway launch device, handles and firing mechanism, battery package, carrying straps and a firing support.
  5. 5.  In the predicted line-of-sight (PLOS) mode, the gunner tracks the target for three seconds and the missile's guidance electronics makes a record of the gunner's movement as he aims and computes the flight path to the predicted position of the target.  It is unnecessary for the gunner to consider the range or angular speed of the target.  After launch the missile flies autonomously to the target.  The missile's position in its trajectory always coincides with the target irrespective of range.
  6. 6.  The training package for the UK MoD includes drill rounds, an indoor trainer, a laser-based short-range and field trainer, a weapons effect simulator, dummy rounds and an ammunition technical officer's (ATO) training package.  An indoor trainer (IDT) is for use in a dismounted close combat trainer (DCCT), both systems being supplied and manufactured by FATS Ltd Lincoln, UK and Atlanta, USA.  The laser-based short-range and field trainer (SR&FT) supplied by Thales Air Defence Systems includes the common weapon replica fitted with NOPTEL laser technology.
