Igla 9K38
Part of Igla Family
Russian surface-to-air missile. Fully developed and more-capable version of the Igla man-portable air defence missile.

AKA: 9K38;9M39;Grouse;Igla-2;SA-18. Status: Operational 1983. Payload: 1.18 kg (2.60 lb). Gross mass: 13 kg (28 lb). Height: 1.55 m (5.08 ft). Diameter: 0.0700 m (0.2290 ft). Span: 0.16 m (0.52 ft).

In 1983 the Igla 9K38 with the 9M39 missile was accepted for production. This had maximum commonality with the Igla-1, using the same rocket motor, warhead, launch mechanism, and sensors. It featured a new optical homing head with a logic unit to optimise the effectiveness of the warhead against the target, while ignoring infrared decoys. The Igla-2 was claimed to be twice as effective as the American Stinger missile, while being substantially cheaper. Maximum speed: 2050km/hr. 10 m minimum altitude.



Country: Russia.
