The RBS-70 is a modern man portable SAM system of Swedish origin. It was developed as a highly mobile system to primarily protect predefined areas, not troops on the move. The manual SACLOS guidance sets this system apart from the more common infrared homing MANPADS designs.
The Valkiri is a multiple rocket launcher of South African origin. The design is based on the Soviet BM-21 Grad, but was slightly improved in order to counter it from longer distances. Valkiri is Afrikaans for Valkyrie. The product improved Valkiri Mk II is known as Bateleur, which is a type of bird of prey.
The M163 Vulcan is a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun of US origin. Also known as the Vulcan Air Defense System (VADS), it was developed to replace the M42 Duster in US service. The M163 was complemented by the Chaparral self-propelled surface to air missile system in US service. The M163 packs powerful armament that is only of limited use against aircraft due to the lack of automated fire control.
