The FIM-92 Stinger missile is a MANPAD (man-portable air-defense system shoulder-fired) that specializes in taking out helicopters. Stingers have been around in numbers since the late 1970s. They were originally developed by General Dynamics and are now made by Raytheon Missile Systems. The Stinger can also target low-flying airplanes and drones, even enemy cruise missiles.
The Stingers can go after what is believed to be a force of over 500 Russian helicopters. Modernized Stingers have a proximity fuse that explodes the rocket near a target.
Stingers allow for versatile tactics, techniques, and procedures. They will come in handy during urban combat in which a crew can hide in a bunker or building and blast helicopters and low-flying fighters out of the sky.
