Background: A new anti-tank missile recently developed in America was tested for the first time outside the United States, January 26, by the U.S. Army Forces at its base near Newa, Okinawa.
The missile is similar to the "Falcon" weighs less than 100 pounds and is only three feet three inches long and can be easily fitted to a jeep or a helicopter.
During the test with a helicopter the missile which has a range of 4,000 ft. and is radio navigation controlled hit the small target every time.
United States forces around the world are expected to be supplied with the new missiles.
