Igla 9K310
Part of Igla Family
Russian surface-to-air missile. First version of the Igla missile deployed. Quickly replaced by the more-capable standard Igla.. Also produced in Bulgaria, North Korea.

AKA: 9K310;9M313;Gimlet;Igla-1;SA-16. Status: Operational 1981. Payload: 1.80 kg (3.90 lb). Gross mass: 11 kg (24 lb). Height: 1.69 m (5.54 ft). Diameter: 0.0670 m (0.2190 ft). Span: 0.16 m (0.52 ft).

Development of the Igla man-portable surface-to-air missile began in 1971. The development program was protracted, and conducted in two phases. The Igla-1 9K310 with the 9M313 missile was accepted by the military in 1981. As opposed to the Strela, the missile used not just the force of its warhead against its target, but also the explosive potential of any remaining solid propellant. In comparison to the Strela-2 the Igla-1 could intercept targets by overtaking them, as well as on an intercept course. The operation of the system was simplified, with the launcher signalling to the operator the best moment for launch. An IFF interrogator was included in the launcher to prevent inadvertent destruction of friendly aircraft. Maximum speed: 2030km/hr.



Country: Russia.
