PARS 3 LR
The PARS 3 LR is the only air-to-ground missile in the game to receive a "fire-and-forget" system to guide the missile. This means that the missile can be fired at a target and does not need to be kept visually locked on while in flight, similar to many Air-to-air missiles. This makes it especially useful to operate it using cover, as the platform is able to fire off the missiles and quickly duck into cover before the target is able to retaliate.

Comparison with analogues
These missiles arguably perform better than the PARS 3 LR in the ground-attack role, but come with the obvious disadvantage of not having a fire-and-forget system and must be guided manually.
Usage in battles
Describe situations when you would utilise this missile in-game (vehicle, pillbox, base, etc)
Pros and cons
- Decent launch range
- Decent explosive mass
- Fire and forget system
