MBDA’s ERYX infantry weapon for short-range combat is the only infantry missile system that is both portable and that can be deployed by a single operator. This makes it ideal for use by rapid deployment and Special Forces, commandos and infantry platoons as a versatile anti-tank and multi-role fire support weapon effective against a wide range of ground targets. Wire-guided, ERYX is man portable or mounted on a tripod and is highly resistant to countermeasures and effective against mobile targets at ranges between 50m to 600m. Due to its weight and compactness, exceptional reliability and soft-launch characteristics, ERYX is a highly versatile general-purpose man-portable system and suited to firing from confined spaces.
