SA-18 IGLA Render BF3

The 9K38 Igla (Russian: Игла́, English: needle, Allied Codename: SA-18 Grouse) is a Russian man-portable infrared homing anti-air missile system that performs similarly to the American FIM-92 Stinger. It was developed to perform better than the Strela family of portable aircraft defense weapons against countermeasures such as flares. The system fires the 9M313 missile and has been used by Iraqi Army in the first Persian Gulf War since its introduction in 1983. It is used by the Axis of Empires and the Coalition of Independent States. Silri uses one to shoot down a Boeing E-3 Sentry in the Resena Line conflict
