Default What's the name of this insurgent weapon

hello there.

I was reading some old military news "here" and got curious about the name of this weapon ... since i never saw any insurgents using it.



at 0:16




seems quite "medium-end" technology.

thanks.

Its the same AT the MEC use in PR for their deployable AT. The MILAN AT missile Launcher.

The British Army + Marines used it, it was used in the falklands. It has been replaced by the Javelin in 2005

speculations about how the insurgents got the Milan AT

The Taliban?s Latest Toy – European Anti-Tank Missiles | Jih@d

"...During the retreat, the French soldiers abandoned some equipment of theirs, including a MILAN missile launcher and two medium-range missiles."



"....United States supplied the Afghan resistance with guided Anti-Tank missiles to fight the Soviet troops."

One was also taken from a British Pinzgauer in Iraq, 2003. The insurgents then used it to attack a Challenger 2 that was disabled. From what I know it did very little damage.
