The Swingfire was an anti-tank missile designed and built by Fairey Engineering Ltd and the British Aircraft Corporation. It was in service with the British Army between 1966 and 2005. The Swingfire was wire-guided and was launched from a launching tube mounted on the FV102 Striker and FV438 armored vehicles. Powered by a solid-fuel rocket, it had a maximum range of 4 km (3.2 miles), and was armed with a 7kg, high explosive shaped-charge warhead. The missile was 1.07 m long (3ft 5 in) and weighed 27 kg (55 lbs). The Swingfire was successfully used by British Army units in Operation Desert Storm in 1991 and Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.
