The Spike missile family includes various variants tailored for different platforms and missions, including ground-based, vehicle-mounted, helicopter-launched, and man-portable systems.

The Spike system can be integrated into a wide range of platforms, including ground vehicles, helicopters, naval vessels, and dismounted infantry, providing versatile and effective anti-armor capabilities.

Spike missiles are renowned for their high precision, capable of accurately engaging targets such as armored vehicles, bunkers, fortifications, and naval vessels.

The missiles feature fire-and-forget operation, allowing operators to launch the missile and move to cover or engage other targets without the need for continuous guidance.

Many Spike variants are equipped with dual-mode seekers, combining electro-optical (EO) and infrared (IR) sensors for enhanced target acquisition and engagement in all weather and lighting conditions.

Spike missiles have ranges varying from 2.5 to 30 kilometers, providing operators with stand-off capability and flexibility in engaging both short and long-range targets.

Some Spike variants employ top-attack profiles, where the missile strikes the target from above, exploiting thinner armor protection and increasing lethality.

The missiles can be armed with various warhead options, including tandem-shaped charges for defeating armored threats and blast fragmentation warheads for engaging soft targets.

Spike missiles are highly maneuverable, capable of performing evasive maneuvers and adjusting their trajectory to accurately engage moving targets.

Spike missiles have been deployed in numerous conflicts and combat operations worldwide, demonstrating their effectiveness, reliability, and lethality on the modern battlefield.
