Anti-tank guided missiles were designed to destroy tank. Many of you may wonder which is the deadliest anti-tank missile. Here is the list of some of the best man-portable anti-tank guided missiles that are currently available. This list does not include vehicle-mounted and helicopter-launched missiles.

The key factors for this Top 10 list are range and penetration of the missile. Guidance method is also considered. Priority is given to advanced fire-and-forget and top-attack type missiles. This analysis is based on specifications and available data. This list does not include missiles that are still being developed.

So which is the best anti-tank guided missile in the world? Which are the deadliest missiles of this type and why?

from the enormous Tsar Bomba, detonated with the force of 3,800 Hiroshima explosions, to the Mk-41, the biggest thermonuclear device ever built by the US, here’s a list ranking 10 of the world’s most powerful nuclear weapons based on explosive power (or yield).

Last month, the National Nuclear Security Administration (formerly the Atomic Energy Commission) announced that the first of a new generation of strategic nuclear weapons had rolled off the assembly line at its Pantex nuclear-weapons plant in the panhandle of Texas. That warhead, the W76-2, is designed to be fitted to a submarine-launched Trident missile, a weapon with a range of more than 7,500 miles. By September, an undisclosed number of warheads will be delivered to the Navy for deployment.

In light of increasing tensions in global hot spots, U.S. military R&D is gaining more urgency. The U.S. will spend nearly $80 billion this year to create new weapons, armor and related gear, up 5% from last year. Even higher spending is planned for 2017.The next array of weapons to outgun the old and explore new discoveries in science and security are coming from defense contractors, university labs and small tech start-ups with big aims. They serve not so much to amaze war tech geeks but to protect and defend...and win.
