Bumbar

     Notes:  The Bumbar (Bumblebee) is a Yugoslavian ATGM based on the French Eryx, but is a significant improvement of that weapon.  The missile features a soft-launch capability; it has an ejection charge that kicks the missile clear of the tube, and then starts the motor.  This results in a low backblast (similar to Davis Countershot weapons) and little firing signature.  The weapon has excellent counter-jamming abilities and is not likely to be decoyed (two levels harder).  Development and production of the Bumbar appears to have stopped in the wake of the breakup of Yugoslavia; its status is now unknown.

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This weapon was just being produced before the Twilight War and is little encountered. 

     Merc 2000 Notes:  This weapon was of great interest throughout the world, but supply never nearly matched demand.

Maljutka

     Notes:  This Yugoslavian ATGM is a development and improvement of the Russian AT-3 Sagger, and in fact the name "Maljutka" is simply the Yugoslavian version of the Russian name of the Sagger, "Malyutka."  Improvements include a better guidance system and a standoff probe to provide better effect for its warhead.  Up to four missiles may be connected to one guidance unit, but only one missile may be controlled at a time.  The Maljutka-1 launcher is not very different from the standard AT-3 Sagger launcher; the Maljutka-2ís launcher is more advanced.  The Maljutka-1 may only fire the Maljutka-1 missile, while the Maljutka-2 launcher may fire either missile.
