PARS 3 LR
The PARS 3 LR is one of few missiles to have a "fire-and-forget" guidance system to guide the missile, currently only sharing this feature with Spike ERs in terms of helicopter-launched weaponry. This means that the missile can be fired at a target and will not require a continuous target lock or laser designation, 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. The PARS 3 LRs also benefit from the unique abilities of its launch platform, the EC-665 Tiger UHT, in the form of the gunner's sight being mounted above the rotor blades, letting the missile lock with the vehicle mostly behind cover to strike unsuspecting enemies.
