In 2005, the Serbian Army decided to begin the development of a lightweight short-range anti-tank missile, specially designed for use in confined spaces by special forces. The Military Technical Institute Belgrade proceeded to its development, eventually resulting in the Bumbar anti-tank missile. It is a missile of just 10 kg weight and wire guided, very similar to French-Canadian Eryx atgw. This missile has a warhead composed of two HEAT tandem charges, allowing the Bumbar to face tanks with compound or reactive armour. They also caary an effective CCD system against electronic countermeasures based on a fast image processing computer. The Bumbar can be mounted on different types of vehicles, from 4×4 to light armored vehicles.
