Singapore has adopted the Israeli NT-S (Spike) anti-tank missile. The Israelis designed the Spike to replace the TOW. It is roughly the same size and has a range of just over 4,000 meters. Its tandem warhead is designed to penetrate reactive armor; it can be set for direct attack or a top-attack flyover.--Stephen V Cole
