Toshiba's
Type 91 is
the only
MANPADS
known to
use a fullyimaging
seeker, but
it can only
be a matter
of time
before this
technology
finds its
way into
Russian
and
Chinese
systems.

WARHEADS
As the data in Table 1 show, all shoulderfired MANPADS carry warheads in the 1- to
3-kg class. If an operational requirement calls
for a heavier warhead, this implies the need
for a heavier missile, a move that rules out a
shoulder-fired weapon. This path was adopted
by the UK, France, and Sweden, who fielded
systems, such as the Thales Starstreak, MBDA
Mistral, and Saab RBS70, in monopod, pedestal,
or vehicle-mounted forms.
Several of the design teams responsible for
Strela-2M copies or derivatives fitted their
weapon with a heavier warhead than the 1.17
kg of the Soviet-era original. In some cases,
