Team Yankee 1/100 Tracked Rapier SAM Section TBBX07
Tracked Rapier SAM Section () includes four Tracked Rapier self-propelled surface-to-air missile launchers, one unit card & one decal sheet.
Tracked Rapier is a self-propelled version of the excellent Rapier surface-to-air missile (SAM) mounted on the chassis of a modified American M548 tracked carrier.
Typical of British missiles, the Rapier is not a homing missile, instead the commander tracks the target using a helmet-mounted sight, and the launcher sends signals to the missile to steer it on to the target. Like the Blowpipe, the result is a missile that is very hard to avoid.
Rapier has another twist in that it does not have a proximity fuse to detonate it in case of a near miss. The weight saving allows for a more manoeuvrable missile that is extremely deadly when it scores the required direct hit.
