Description

The Serbian military has produced a great short range anti tank missile and could be useful against US military or NATO leopard 2 main battle tank. The BUMBAR (English: Bumble Bee) is a short-range portable anti-tank missile system developed and produced by Serbia. Type Anti-tank missile Place of origin Serbia Service history In service 2012 Production history Designer Military Technical Institute Belgrade Designed 2005 Manufacturer Krušik Number built 12 station in final stage of production(100 missiles) + 3 prototypes built Specifications Weight Missile: 10kg Launch tube: 2 kg Firing post: 4 kg Tripod: 2 kg Total: 18 kg Length 0.9 m (35 in) Diameter 136 mm (5.4 in) Warhead tandem, shaped charge Operational range 60 m-600 m (1000 m under development) Speed 18 m/s at launch - 245 m/s at maximum Guidance system SACLOS wire-guided Launch platform Individual, Vehicle Description[edit] Bumbar (English: Bumble Bee) is an anti-armor (tank) weapon from Serbia. The Bumbar is a wire guided, man-portable, short-ranged missile system for use against ground targets. The missile has a soft launch capability - the main motor firing after the missile has left the launcher, which allows for the missile to be fired from confined spaces, which is a necessity in urban warfare. During the flight rocket is maneuvered by unique system of thrust vectoring. The missile is propelled by two main rocket motor exhaust vanes located at mid body. As the missile rotates the launch units send signals commanding the correction by one of the two vanes to move against the missile motors thrust. For example if the missile has to move to the left, the right thrust vector vane will actuate at the correct time. It is protected against electronic countermeasures through: "Use of CCD matrix sensors, fast image processing computer and robust missile tracer recognition algorithm."[1] Its general design is similar to the French/Canadian ERYX MBDA anti-tank missile.[2] However MBDA has never supplied Serbia or the former Yugoslavia with technical information regarding the Eryx.[3] All key components of the Bumbar system are indigenously developed by VTI - Military Technical Institute Belgrade Serbia. General information[edit] Time of flight to target at 600 m: 4.6 s Warhead penetration: over 1000 mm RHA behind ERA Range: up to 600 m Weapon length in travelling position: 1164 mm Capable of firing from confined spaces Night firing capability Mass of missile in transporting/launching tube: 14 kg Secondary warhead caliber: 55 mm LC axis superelevation angle: 10°
