The Spike LR

In addition to the fire & forget mode, the SPIKE LR and ER offer the unique fire observe & update mode by a bidirectional fiber optic communication link. This data link transmits the video image from the missile's seeker head as it approaches the target, allowing the gunner to optimize aiming during flight. The fire observe & update mode provides unprecedented tactical flexibility. It also enables lock-on after launch (LOAL) on order to destroy non-line-of-sight targets (NLOS) with ultimate precision, in particular during combats in urban and complex terrain.
