Systems under consideration include the Russian KBP Metis-M and Kornet-E, China's Norinco Red Arrow, Pakistan's Baktar Shikan, the MBDA TRIGAT and the Denel Ingwe from South Africa. The army already has a limited number of Metis M and Baktar Shikan systems, but the Kornet-E is said by sources to be favoured due to its performance in 2006 against Israeli armour in Lebanon.
