forgot to add, the at-3 sagger was well known but not much info on the at-2 swatter missile how effective was it?

ISTR that later on the AT-2 was less reliable because it used radio control & that was more easily jammed/unreliable than wire guidance.

Still in service with a number of countries, it was a common helicopter atgm for MI-8, MI-24 and MI-25 helo's. First round hit probabilities were around 67% for the A and B models and 90% for the C. It is/has been being replaced by the AT-5 on vehicles and AT-6 on helicopters.
