Bofors Orm Missile Launcher

by Antti Lahtinen


A 4-shot package launcher with build-in laser designator. When several launchers are carried in one vehicle, only one launcher ("master") requires a designator, and the other "slave" launcher are much cheaper (83.2 dm3, 40 kg empty, 120 kg loaded, 1800 Cr)

The rocket will burn out in 15.6 seconds and the engine is separated from the warhead. If fired on ballistic arc, the missile may fly up to 36 km on standard atmosphere (8 min 51 s flight time). The fin-guided missile can manoeuver and hit a designated target at any range it can reach, but cannot pursue evading aircraft at extreme range (missile slows down loses agility at longer ranges).
