France - Paris - Ecuador army officers admire missile
Two army officers from Ecuador admire an air-to-ground PARS 3 LR missile at the Paris Air Show, Le Bourget France. The two men (the man on the right's name badge says M Pazmino), admire the sleek design of the missile called PARS 3 LR in German but known as TRIGAT-LR (Third Generation AntiTank, Long Range) and AC 3G in the French military, the missile is a high-precision 'fire-and-forget' weapon system for engaging mobile and stationary targets equipped with the latest generation of armour protection, such as tanks, field fortresses, bunkers and other high-value targets. The system can launch up to four salvos in eight seconds.
The Paris Air Show is a commercial air show, organised by the French aerospace industry whose purpose is to demonstrate military and civilian aircraft to potential customers.
