(IHS Markit/Patrick Allen)Jordanian firm Jadara Equipment and Defence Systems has completed development and commenced production of the new Terminator anti-tank guided weapon (ATGW) system.

This comprises a tripod-based launching unit weighing 6.3 kg and 4.3 kg respectively, the 7.2 kg PUT-1 guidance unit, and the Terminator missile in its disposable launch tube.

The solid-propellant missile has a diameter of 107 mm and features a semi-automatic laser guidance system, which enables the operator to steer it by maintaining the sight on the target. The company specifies a minimum range of 100 m and a maximum range of 2,500 m with time of impact at maximum range being 13 seconds.

The Terminator ATGW is being marketed with two different warheads. The first is a tandem high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead, which Jadara claims will penetrate 550 mm of conventional steel armour protected by explosive reactive armour (ERA). It weighs 15.9 kg with its launch container.

The second is a 15.4 kg high-explosive fragmentation (HE-FRAG) warhead, which is stated to be capable of penetrating 50 mm of conventional steel armour.
