The crew can fire all six missiles on the mount without reloading. Successive missiles can be fired and tracked within five seconds of the previous missile’s impact. The gunner can operate either from within the vehicle or from a remote position up to 80 metres away. The SAGGER is a wire guides ATGM with a HEAT warhead. It can engage targets at ranges of 500 to 3000 metres and can penetrate 400mm of armour.
