FV102 Striker

FV102 Striker is the Swingfire wire guided anti-tank missile carrying member of the CVR(T) family. Five missiles ready to fire and five stowed are carried. The missiles have hollow charge warheads and were originally steered by joystick control, later updated to the Automatic Command Line of Site (ACLOS) system where the controller merely sights the target. The missiles are fired at a fixed elevation of 35 and have an effective range of 4000 metres.

With missile launcher bins lowered.
