An anti-tank guided missile (ATGM), anti-tank missile, anti-tank guided weapon (ATGW) or anti-armor guided weapon is a guided missile primarily designed to hit and destroy heavily armored military vehicles.[1]

These missiles are designed to hit and destroy tanks because normal guns and bullets can't easily penetrate their tough armour.[2][3]
