Eurospike GmbH

Eurospike is a joint venture based in Röthenbach a.d. Pegnitz between Diehl Defence GmbH & Co. KG, Rheinmetall Electronics GmbH and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd.

Eurospike GmbH is responsible for the marketing of the missiles of the SPIKE family in Europe. The production of the missiles (SR, LR2) is carried out at several sites in Germany. Commonalities between the missiles of the SPIKE family ensure a cost advantage in the production and consequently in the purchase, maintenance and training in the use of specific missiles.

Additionally due to the success of SPIKE sales throughout Europe, most members of the NATO alliance are SPIKE users which ensures interoperability and also has advantages when needing to stock during exercises.


The baltic European Union and NATO member has bought the SPIKE anti-tank missile system. This is the biggest defence contract in the 100 year old history of Latvia.


It was a busy time this year during the trade fair season.

In supporting our customers we exhibited at three different European exhibitions.


Spike Family

The missile family is comprised of: SPIKE SR, the new Spike LR2, the Spike ER, as well as the Spike NLOS ranging from 50 m to 30 km.

SPIKE SR The SPIKE SR is a light weight shoulder launched fully disposable Fire and Forget (F&F) missile with an effective range of 50-1500 meters. The SPIKE SR fulfills the anti-tank operational requirements of many if not most European armed forces.

The state of the art seeker technology (day/night), including uncooled IIR, high resolution CCD as well as an optimized tracker is tailored to the needs of infantry forces in a variety of operational and environmental scenarios.

SPIKE LR2 The SPIKE LR2 is a 5th generation precision guided missile system designed for the modern warfare with multiplatform, multipurpose capabilities including F&F / Fire, observe and update capabilities as well as abilities of third party target allocation (launch to grid coordinates in no line of sight) based on an internal IMU.

The SPIKE LR2 light weight, enhanced lethality and great standoff of 5.5 (ground) to 10 (air) km makes it the ideal munition for infantry as well as light attack helicopters. The SPIKE LR2 was originally designed to be launched by the existing 29 nations SPIKE LR launchers.

SPIKE ER The SPIKE ER is a multi-purpose multi-platform missile system for ranges up to 8 km. The SPIKE ER has been integrated to various types of platforms around the world including attack helicopters, naval boats as well as wheeled and tracked vehicles.

The relative light weight and great stand-off with the milimetric precision of the SPIKE ER (including F&F/F&O capabilities) in stand-off of 8 km makes the SPIKE ER an excellent weapon of choice both for attack helicopters and ground vehicles allowing to engage enemy tank & armor targets well out of their detection range.

SPIKE NLOS The SPIKE NLOS (Non-Line-of-Sight) is precision guided missile with a great legacy of operational use by the different SPIKE User nations. The NLOS is a multi-purpose, multi-platform electro-optical missile system with real-time wireless data link for ranges up to 30 km. SPIKE NLOS is ideal as a maneuvering PGM for precision attack in great stand-off.

The weapon system is integrated today on modern attack helicopters allowing engagement of target well out of the air defense range as well as engagement from vehicles in hidden locations and maritime vessels for precision engagement sea-to sea or sea to inner land.


In conjunction with the SPIKE weapon system themselves EUROSPIKE also offers different types of training for the SPIKE weapon systems:

The Indoor trainer (IDT) takes the operator through the complete training sequence, from target acquisition based on a simulated image through to a SPIKE Missile launch and hit. The IDTs provide a simulation of all of the systems operational features (aural sensing, ergonomics, controls response, visual images through the sights, symbols and command function messages).

The outdoor trainer (ODT) uses a training round to train and practice the gunner in the operation of the system through all of the pre-firing sequences right up to the firing act, all within a real-life environment. The ODT/IDT is used to reduce the costs of live missile firing.
