Name: Anti-tank guided missile launcher  

Swingfire is an anti-tank missile which owes its development to the Vigilant and Orange William projects.

It was in 1960 that Swingfire was produced using Thrust Vectored Control (TVC) to manoeuvre the missile after launch. A hard-hitting missile which can be fired from a vehicle or remotely fired from a portable ground-based launcher, (to preserve launch control concealment) the missile has proved highly successful. Swingfire was fitted to the Ferret Mk5 Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC)

and was also used by the armed forces of Belgium.

An infantry-transportable version was also produced for use in open terrain, mounted on a 2-wheel trolley and capable of being fired by only one man.
