What is the BGM-71 TOW?

The BGM-71 TOW ("Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided")is an American anti-tank missile.

It is the anti-tank missile with semi-automatic guidance capability.
By keeping the target in the center of the sight, the system recognizes the gap between the missile and the sight line and moves the missile to the center of the sight, allowing the missile to hit the target.

OPERATION

Activate1 : Launch Missile
Pitch&Roll : Used for sighting. Used to fine-tune the sight when selecting a target.
VTOL : Sensitivity adjustment
When a target is selected, the sight automatically tracks the target.

    @rwsh take out the cockpit and add it to your subassemblies. Then you can use it for any of your builds but be sure to give credit to @Scharnhorst if you post it

    it could also be a wonderful harpoon, with the ability to drag equipment. only you will need to change the mass of the installation itself

    I found that this "BGM-71 TOW" is anti-tank, but I found that it is very good to use it to fight aircraft. I look forward to the author's release of more long-range missiles. The rocket you made is a more realistic reproduction of the real rocket launch process, I look forward to the author's release of more long-range missiles, so that I can better fight planes!

    I tried ripping the barrel and the rocket off and stuck it to a helicopter the engines don’t work but it does fire and the wings don’t come out what can I do I’m not trying to make it guided just so it flies faster to where I’m aiming
