Description
The GROM is a MAn-Portable Air-Defense missile System MANPADS designed, developed by MESKO a subsidiary of Polish Defence Holding. The GROM (PPZR) short-range air defense missile system is designed for destroying visually observed air targets, including aircrafts, helicopters and other targets emitting infrared radiation, flying on the courses of approaching at a speed up to 400 m/s and on the courses of receding at a speed up to 360 m/s in a danger zone. the system is based on the Soviet-made 9K38 Igla (SA-18 Grail). At MSPO 2014 International Defense Exhibition in Poland, Lithuania signed a EUR 34 million contract with Poland for PPZR GROM soldier-portable anti-aircraft missiles, along with necessary instrumentation, simulators, and training. The GROM is in service with Georgia, Indonesia, Lithuania and Poland.

Design
The GROM MANPADS is designed to be operated by one soldier. It consists of a single-stage projectile, a single-use tubular launcher, a starting mechanism, and an on-ground power supply. The whole GROM system including launch unit and missile has a total weight of 16.5 kg. GROM system features a dual-channel IR seeker and highly sophisticated FM-tracking logic target discrimination selection unit to defeat sophisticated (pyrotechnically, blinking and modulated) IR decoys.
Missile
The missile is powered by solid fuel engine and is equipped with an infrared homing system. The missile of the GROM system can hit a flying target at a distance from 400 m to 5.5 km and from an altitude of 10 m minimum to 4 km maximum. The GROM missile uses a "duck" configuration with four drop-down stabilizer with a seeker at the front similar to the Soviet-made 9E410 cooled dual-band seeker. The infrared aiming sensor is cooled with liquid nitrogen. The GROM missile has a total weight of 10.5 kg including an 1.27 kg high-explosive warhead.
Accessories
The GROM system can be equipped with an "Identification Friend-or-Foe" IFF reconnaissance device and a thermal imaging sight. The IFF is an identification system designed for command and control. It enables military and national (civilian air traffic control) interrogation systems to identify aircraft, vehicles or forces as friendly and to determine their bearing and range from the interrogator. IFF may be used by both military and civilian aircraft.
Combat use
The GROM is intended to engage low-flying targets on head-on and pursuit courses in clutter and IR jamming environments. When engaging slow or straight-receding targets, the operator tracks the target with the iron sights in the launch tube and applies half-trigger. The shooter then pulls the trigger fully, and immediately applies lead and super elevation.
