TOW is kind of like Sidewinder. It seems to go on without end...

 

I actually remember reading about its testing before I was a teenager, and I am 61 years old now.

Your grandfather's TOW is not the same as yours... Same with Sidewinder.

Compare Warrior with Ajax. One is something in excess of 10 tonnes heavier than the other and the turreted version almost but not quite throws away passengers, making it a very fat CVRT Scimitar with a bit more bang, if LM ever get the turret working to spec.

...

Big mods (barring upgrades to penetration) were M220A1 launcher and ITOW that introduced coded blinker to prevent jamming and M220A2 launcher that introduced double tracking of IR blinker (both IR and thermal if TI sight is mounted). This has made it quite jamming resistant, unlike some other missiles (Konkurs, Milan and HOT for example).
